Food was really poor. The breadcrumbs on the Brie were stale and unpleasant. The pasta was well overcooked and mushy. The chicken melt was inedible. No surprise we were the only people in the restaurant on a Sunday night. Only plus side was the service.

Delicious and exquisite food. Friendly staff and excellent service. The sea bass was particularly delicious and the desserts are also wonderful. I also had the chicken and avocado which was delicious too. Have been there now on 4 occasions and every visit has been perfect.

We stumbled across this restaurant by accident and were really glad we did. Outstanding food in a lovely atmosphere. Lucy the waitress was friendly and a pleasure to deal with. We cannot recommend this place enough, really worth a visit.

We were tempted in here when we saw the sandwich menu outside and we were not disappointed. The place has a lovely, lively atmosphere and service was good, despite there being a very large group in. There was a good choice of sandwich fillings which...More
