    A friend and I visited for lunch for the first time, and had a lovely meal. The food was excellent, we also had a couple of cocktails each and a bottle of wine. The stand out dishes were the tuna tartare, the carpaccio and the buffalo mozzarella - all so delicious. I’d like to compliment the staff who waited on our table, two young women, one of whom was on a trial shift, and who provided very friendly and knowledgable service - both a credit to your business.

    This is my second visit and I love the variety of having several small dishes which we can share. I would have liked maybe a bit of salad to have with my various options but the food was delicious.

    Cheery welcome. Great service. Delicious courses—almost ‘fine dining’. Lively ambience. Not too pricey.
