The food here is really excellent but the wait is ridiculous! I will never eat here again and if you value your time you won’t either. There are plenty of places to eat in the area that have better service.

Very welcoming - both staff and decor. The menu seemed fine until we ordered. Only one 'short-crust' lid available - on any pie then the alternative chosen was not apparently any longer provided. Why was this not removed from the menu? Food delivered was fine...More
