Went in for Sunday lunch. Friendly polite conscientious waiter. Friendly owner. Food was good, particularly dessert. Roast was about a third of what I can eat (had to make something at home). Seating uncomfortable. Will probably come back for a snack one day.

My family and I popped in as we liked the look of the place, and were really happy with every aspect of the visit. Staff were very friendly and attentive, the food was very tasty and the presentation was outstanding. We will definitely be back.
