Honestly, I can't fault this place. Apart from the most impressive choice of drinks and foods, the atmosphere and the service are unbeatable. Special thanks to Matt, who isn't just going the extra mile - he's going extra ten miles!

Response from Peter J | Reviewed this property |
I don't think it is particularly child friendly as it is a bit cramped in the bar area for pushchairs etc. But i am sure the restaurant (separate off to one side) will supply a high chair on request.
