    The food was lovely and arrived promptly. Only issue was that after our last plate was taken away, we seemed to be forgotten about and had to wait 45 minutes for the bill.

    Party of 5 - we were all cold. When we asked we were told the heatiing had broken and the large window at end of building wasn't a good fit!

    Three of us at 1pm on matchday (3pm kick off). Cheerfully served, good food delivered after an acceptable small wait.
