It is sad to say this lovely Restaurant has now closed, We have been many times. So sorry to see it close down. Apparently Rob will be opening another Restaurant in the Lord Street area before too long.

We booked a couple of tables for a post christening meal. Buffet provided was good, service from the bar was fine. Basically a nice cosy place for a drink or a snack
