Lovely ambience for the evening, quiet and suitable for readers. Menu was ok; main attraction was the setting and environment.

Loved the ambience here – a quaint and cosy place perfect for a nice conversation over a delicious meal or for settling into an armchair with one of the many books available for in-house reading. It helped greatly that the food was wonderful too –...More
