Menus brought and drinks order taken quickly. Waiting staff approached when they sensed we were ready to order. No pressure and no long delays. There is a wide choice of...

We have been several times before and visited again yesterday (25/2/17) for lunch. The service was, as usual excellent, the menu with small changes was also very good and we didn't have to wait an exceptional time to be served - unlike some others places we have been to. I would recommend the Lasagne and for the dessert, everyone should...
