Great place for family meals. They went out of their way going into London just to purchase my lobster for my 50th birthday meal which was pre booked. Customer services is great if eating in. Take away service is usually quite slow.

No onsite parking. Parking was not a problem though, we could park on the sideroads nearby. Hope this helps. 👍
