Ate here today and am delighted to say the portion sizes are much better than my previous visit. The plaice and chicken dishes were both delicious and the creme brûlée and cheese board very good too. Service good too. Would recommend.

Had a very disappointing lunch last August but further visits since then have been great. Food and service were both very good, great value for money and the usual 'buzzy' atmosphere. Would highly recommend a visit.
