    My son had eaten half his burger and then discovered a live carter pillar on the lettuice. The manager approached the table and didn’t apologise, but offered a new burger, but my son refused because he was not up to eaten anymore. He was given a free drink. I couldn’t believe when I got the bill I was still charged for the burger.

    Poor menu choices (2 soups & 2 bread in starters) and limited fine wine selection. Mussels were excellent. Staff very attentive but interior drab and in need of a facelift. Disappointed as expected more.
