Not greated by anyone on arrival. Poor service had to ask another waiter to clean our table as ours was absent all the time. Food average. Our food came after our friends finished theirs. Waiter not even atemp to apoligize.

Lovely venue with vintage cars & big variety of gins to choose from. Well-priced tasting & nice experience to enjoy with small group of friends/family. Make a booking to get a nice spot between the vintage cars.
