We were seated in the bar area as the restaurant was full, but instead of being uncomfortable on the tall seats, the tables have a really nice foot rest underneath. The food came out rather quickly, and in goodly sized portions, and were very nice.

This restaurant is definitely welcoming, and makes me want to return. We had a round table for 8 which was nice as it meant we could all talk. I had the pork belly. The crackling was crispy, which is a must. Perhaps not the best...More
