We went here after a recommendation from a family member, its very much a wine bar. The menu is very limited and it does get very busy. If you like small portions and 'fancy food' then it may be to your taste.

In addition to the celebrated oggies this place has a fantastic selection of beautifully made, imaginative and generously proportioned sausage rolls as well as a good selection of pies etc. Your only problem is deciding what to have! Quality shop.
