    We were a party of 6 and had a table on the ground floor - be prepared to wait for food to arrive - 4 of our party were served and the others had to wait about 5 mins for their main meal and our sides

    Imaginative menu but also has classic dishes for less adventurous diners. Unobtrusive but efficient service.
