Had dinner with a friend and had looked forward to eating outside but the fine spell of weather had broken. Good menu with wide choices. The Charcuterie plate was particularly well received. Nice cocktail list.

Service without a smile, overpriced food and drink, no apologies for food that had to be returned to the kitchen. The plus side, great location with plenty of activity on the canal.

The beer/wine was expensive as was the food. Had to wait 40 minutes for our food - the waitress forgot to pass order to the chef. Will NOT be coming back!
