The foundry has unusual decor from the hay day of the textile mills. The food and service are extraordinary with seafood, steaks and many other fine meals. A full service bar with atmosphere galore. A bit pricey but well worth the experience.

Sunday brunch is a real treat. A wide variety of breakfast and lunch items nicely presented. The food quality was very good, service excellent and value very good. Not for every Sunday but a nice place for a special occasion.
