Food was Lovely! Arrived very quickly. The whole room was lovely and tastefully renovated. Staff were very attentive. If I were to nit pick we were placed in a corner table but wasn't a huge issue I just wouldn't sit in the corner again. I dined with my partner but can definately see myself coming here again with the whole family for special events. What a fab menu! Lots of choices. I can see this as being our new go to restaurant
