The overall meal was edible. Nothing special. The choices on the main courses were unusual and I struggled to choose something I might like. I went for the chicken in the end which was ok. The staff were friendly. Wouldn't eat there again.

Nothing to find fault with, except for the meringue in the dessert (consistency of the very dry and brittle ones you see in supermarkets). Friendly staff - we always give cash as a tip, as anything added onto the bill apparently doesn't go to the...More

Yes. We normally have tea during the interval still served at our table. Another nice aspect is that you can leave your coats in the restaurant so don't have to queue up to get them back from cloakroom.
