Popped in for lunch today. Greeted by the fair Richard, who was very welcoming and engaging. Found us a table quickly - in a packed restaurant. Food was v. good and a reasonable cost. Drinks selection broad and imaginative.

There is a seating area but only small in front of the bar - but the staff are superb I am sure they will accommodate if more seats are required. I'm sure you will enjoy as it's always fabulous.
