Have visited on occasions recently. A good range of vegetarian and non veg. choices. Excellent house red (Grenache). Enjoyed vegetarian courses esp Moroccan vegetable with aubergine chick peas although I'm not a vegetarian. Overall food excellent and staff friendly and engaging. Will certainly be back.
