Wow!!! Excellent food, service was fantastic and the cocktails were amazing. Would highly recommend especially for a family meal. Wasn’t rushed and we had the table all night. The waiters went above and beyond to make sure our evening was a memorable one.

Jeans, shoes and a shirt for chaps I would think. I wore tights, a tunic dress and heeled boots when I was last there in December.
