Great food, although a little expensive. Very accommodating with our dog and had a lovely corner table in the bar. Staff were a bit indifferent, and not particularly warm or welcoming, but they were efficient.

Good food and good value. Very attentive staff. Wine list a trifle disappointing but you can still find a good reasonably priced one. Dogs welcome. Took overseas visitors and they were very pleased
