12 of us booked in for dinner. While most enjoyed their meal there were a few issues with food coming out not fully heated. Staff worked hard to fix any problems though and servings were generous.

Called in with friends for a few drinks and nibbles only to discover a celebration was underway for American Independence Day. What a fantastic night, totally embraced by the locals, great food, great hospitality and danced the night away. Thanks for a wonderful night.
