As usual the food here was fabulous and following a return the place was looking very smart. The standard here never drops.

Occasionally you get a bad/average review that you just can't help but respond to, just because it's such a nonsensical and skewed review that you just think "Why not?"...after all, the "reviewer" is allowed to go unchallenged. Firstly, we appreciate that we managed at least...More
