This was a great choice for a few friends to sit and share a meal. A wide range of choices with some favourites for everyone. Great wine list and fantastic desserts.

It's such a shame that people choose to leave a bad review when all they needed to do was talk to the wait person and the dish would have been replaced or they could have chosen another. We weren't even given the opportunity which I...More
