Lovely lunch with my family. We had an excellent waitress. She was very pleasant, efficient and professional. I think her name was Fiona. We will be back.

I recently had dinner here, food was lovely and desert was delicious! We were served by a blonde lady who couldn't have been more helpful and attentive. Very efficient service.. I will definitely be returning soon!
