A good price. Very good service. We were in a large group and we were looked after constantly with drinks being refilled and breads seamlessly being ordered. The meals were a good size.

The food we ordered was very good indeed. Even allowing for individual cooking times however, the service was very slow. Location was good and staff were friendly however.
