    Looking for an excuse to go back ASAP!

    My daughter's birthday meal was, as ever, fabulous! Our welcome was very warm, the service was fantastic and the food could not have been fresher if it had been cooked at our table! It is a very relaxing place in which to be, exuding warmth and friendliness and the quality of the food is first class. Can't wait to go back!

    I can't wait to go back!

    The brunch was fantastic and the most amazing value for money! We got a booth, as requested. Lauren, who looked after us, was absolutely lovely. The service was perfect, as not only we we very well looked after, but we were also left alone to catch up with each other and never felt that we should leave! The ambience in this place is happy and relaxed. It has long been one of my favourites and I can't wait to go back.
