Warmly greeted by friendly staff. Really tasty food and good wine. The oysters were plump and fresh. Main meal of duck in a red jus was delicious.

The staff is fantastic, very warm and welcoming. The meat is amazing, melts on your tongue. Great selection of wines on the list. Good value for money. The only downside is that you can't walk there.More
