4 of us dined here & it was lovely & the simple menu for food & drinks is perfect; just some feedback - excellent service & timing of the food; only comment the carrots needed more cooking; the ambience is really nice & welcoming; suggestion Art Mural needed on the main wall as the existing look is pretty poor; otherwise great place, thank you.
