    Delicious food, pleasant atmosphere. We were in the centre of the ground floor, and it was quite cold, as the front door was kept wide open.

    We ordered the set brunch. The humous and aubergine starters were excellent but the remaining selection was poor. The main courses were ok but disappointing. The service was casual and friendly.

    The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were great. Only let down was that the music was incredibly loud so it was hard to hear each other.
