Great price and choices. The roast beef was delicious and all the dessert's were both pretty and tasty! (We tried them all between us!) Coffee in the sunny garden completed lunch. The staff were attentive but not too obtrusive. Fab!

This is a great location and the service is excellent. They cannot do enough for you. The food didn't quite meet expectations, the spelt risotto was a little underwhelming and the lamb was a little overcooked. Nice, but perhaps not quite as good as it...More
