I would recommend the platters, great selection and plenty to share. We found the service very good and it has a good central location. We’ll be back 😄

Down at the back of the restaurant there are a couple of tables to fit a buggy, but it can be a squeeze to get there but grand. And there's loads of baby seats :-)
