Enjoyed a quiet meal here. Staff were efficient and attentive. Food was fine. Nothing to write home about and a little over priced compared with other good restaurants in the area.

Visiting my 95 year old relative end of September and looking for a suitable venue for either a lunch or early evening meal with her. She is unable to climb only but a couple of stairs and has hearing difficulties so would be looking at a quiet area in the restaurant. Is this possible at your restaurant, please let me know. Thank You.
