In an almost empty restaurant, we waited far too long for our food to arrive. The restaurant itself is comfortable and has a warm atmosphere. The front of house staff are friendly and efficient. The food is poor and overpriced. Had to abandon the chargrilled...More

Looks unexciting from the outside, but much better on the inside. Serves up a decent lunch, we had the pork belly and seafood linguine. Food good and tasty well cooked, took a little longer than we'd hoped but no complaints
