A really lovely meal. It is a quiet restaurant so you ca actually talk and hear each other. Brilliant.

Good solid traditional fare - highlight was the Dessert - good range of wine by the glass

Although the food was excellent it took 50 minutes between ordering our mains for our meals to be served. We also needed to prompt the waiters. We also ordered a side plate of greens (ordered with our main meal) that was delivered about five minutes after the main was brought to the table. For two busy people setting aside an hour to have lunch, this meant extending out and running late for our afternoon's schedule. Very disappointing.

Love the quiet atmosphere - carpets! tablecloths! You can hear each other talk! Beautiful surroundings, too.
