Title says it all really, the staff were very attentive, the decor is lovely and the restaurant, building and loo's all very clean. The food was good but didn't have the wow factor that you'd expect.

Last Night we visited the Wayfarer , nine of us, for my God Daughters 19th birthday. Short review.... Food really tasty and beautifully presented, great value for money. Staff superb !! No wonder it was packed out. Highly recommend this restaurant either for a special occasion or a simple night out.
