Staff friendly and efficient. Food nice. Good value for money with lunch special. We had a view. So overall we had a lovely time.
I asked the waitress which white wine was dry, and she was obviously struggling, I said I am happy for her to ask her colleagues, but she declined (!). She had us taste two wines, and we picked one which was fine. I think a better response would have been to ask her colleagues and have us taste two of their suggestions.
Great table, yummy food, quick friendly service and not expensive
