We booked at the last minute and the Brasserie very kindly slotted us in. The management and staff were all extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Delicious fish dishes and attention to detail with all our meals was excellent.

Revisited early March on a quiet Friday evening, A warm welcome, with great service and good menu choices. We enjoy the excellent fish, but when we go with the meat eaters in our family there's always something good for everyone. Clean and bright, nicely furnished....More
