As a lunch time and early evening offer the retro menu is a good deal. The portions are obviously smaller but well cooked and presented. It was good to find a professionally run independent restaurant.

The food here is outstanding. Great service too at both the bar and at the table. It is a little pricey but you pay for what you get which was great. We will definitely be returning.
