Lovely atmosphere and food. The staff are very friendly, efficient and we couldn't fault them - they always make a fuss of my 90 year old mother, which she loves

The atmosphere and surroundings are very nice and it is confident if you are attending the theatre, but you felt rushed in between courses, with mains ready when you had literally just finished your starter. Staff were friendly but it lacked the warmth and ease...More
