The menu changes every day! Good wine selection and variety of dishes. I had the beef and it was fantastic! There is outside seating which is nice to get away from the smoke.

This is a "go to" restaurant for business meals. The food is always good and the service excellent. They have a lovely garden in the back which can get hot in the summer.
