Really lovely lunch. Service was amazing - they looked after us very well. Everything we ate was delicious. Excellent attention to detail with food intolerances - I was dining with someone who needed everything to be gluten free. They took a lot of care to make sure this was catered for. Will definitely be returning.

Terrible service, food was nice enough but probably not justified for the price or experience Mocktails at £10 a pop is ridiculous since it’s no diff to others
