Excellent ambient and overall very noise-friendly. Excellent place to talk
Fantastic food, great value for money. Service could be a little slow at times as we were always waiting for water and always topped up our own wine, but staff were lovely, just clearly quite understaffed.
Delicious authentic food in a cosy relaxed setting with friendly staff
