Had lunch yesterday in the mezzanine section. Wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and excellent service. Could happily have stayed all afternoon. Great selection of meat, fish and vegetarian food in generous portions.

My colleagues tried the crab starter, which looked absolutely delicious. I had a difficult moment with a prawn and brown shrimp cocktail which came so carefully balanced in a...more

The best thing about this place? At 7 PM on a sunny Friday we could still find a seat at the bar.
