Ok, the interior Stylish and the staff look very professional ,on the face of it very impressive.
But then the menu is very mid range and vast....from burgers to curries...and the staff not quite as good as they look...but they are new...
Wine list is ok .
What is great is the quality of the food ,everything we had was very good ,the Tuna Carpaccio was excellent.
Overall not a place for a special occasion or for really exciting food but it does what it does well and we will be back, but probably for lunch or a midweek dinner.

We booked at 4.45 and it was quite quiet . It was a hot day and all the doors were open so there was a nice breeze. We had afternoon tea for £19.75 There was 3 different sandwiches which were very There were 3 different desserts and 2 scones which were amazing . Full of flavour and moist and with perfect texture and plentiful raisins. There is lots of choices of different teas. I had the fresh Mint which was delicious . An extra pot of tea is included in the price . The price was very reasonable but it would have been even better if there were more sandwiches. I would recommend this place

Just had lunch there. Lovely, interesting surroundings, great attentive (but not too) service, lots of menu choices and fair prices. Will certainly return.

I took my Sister and my Niece to lunch to celebrate their birthdays. There is a wide choice of menu and every course was delicious. It has a lovely ambience about the place and the staff were brilliant. A good time was had by all of us. Can't wait to return there.

After waiting for 15 minutes on a fairly quiet Monday lunchtime we left as no one had even taken a drinks order. They didn’t seem particularly bothered by this.

An embarrassment to the brand
