This restaurant was recommended to us and we were pleased we chose it. Food quality was high and service was pretty attentive. There were a couple of issues but they were very well addressed and we felt most welcome. Would definitely visit again

Dear Chris A real shame to hear that you didn't have a great evening, despite us making a table (for 16!!) available for you at the very last minute, opening our private dining room to do so. As a small and very busy restaurant, with...More
