This was one of the best meals we have had in a long time. The highlights were the ragu bolognese and the absolutely stunning rib of beef. The servers were brilliant; really friendly and informative about the food and the restaurant. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely lunch - always cheaper than the evening option and means you can get the Michelin experience for a fraction of the price. Price for these things varies in terms of value in that if you have a good time then... More
