    Great food and staff, the decorating is very simple . I feel that a place like this should have a more modern decoration. Again … the food is amazing !!!

    Disappointing. Understaffed yet manager did little. Food quality mediocre. Friendly waiter clearly over stretched. Good venue and location.

    The sirloin steak was tough tasteless inedible. The staff accepted this and deducted from the bill. However as I was taking a friend for a birthday lunch this rather spoiled the occasion .
