Four of us ate here last evening, without a booking. The restaurant had a very nice, comfortable feel to it with a good menu, The staff were very attentive. The fire was very welcome as the evening turned cold. A very pleasant evening.

Our second visit to this restaurant the last time just over a year ago, you will need to book a table on busy days. It was not quite as good as the first time but still a nice meal and a great location
