I had a group of 12 for dinner, and we all enjoyed from start to finish. The fish was enjoyed, the size of the food portions were not too big, the service was excellent and friendly.

I suppose that what is different about this lane is that it is narrow with buildings on both sides that go up a few floors. Not sure when they were built but it certainly wasn't yesterday! The wall plaque for 'The Slate House' located on...More
