Excellent food and service.

Very welcoming staff. Nice atmosphere. Not sure about the scallops - they were rather overwhelmed (swamped, actually) by the apple and celeriac puree, but otherwise were perfectly cooked. Both mains very good and likewise the red wine we chose to go with it.

The initial drinks were a bit slow in arriving, even though it was quiet, and had to chased up. The meal was very tasty and good value. The chicken fajita was absolutely delicious with lovely sauces and the steak was perfectly cooked and tender. The atmosphere was great, a good buzz but not noisy with good background music. The interior was attractive and quirky, and the staff were very pleasant and attentive.
