    Very good. the sun was very bright so please consider fitting adjustable blinds to reduce the glare if needed

    A lovely decorated restaurant; very warm and relaxing in the centre of a business park. Free parking and the food was excellent. Drinks were a tad on the pricey side; I assume because it's in a business park. But a lovely atmosphere and the waiter was very friendly and chatty. We didn't feel rushed. Would recommend if you want to go somewhere just off junction 12.
