    Lovely tasty food! Will definitely be dining here again. There was a long wait for our puddings, on the hottest day of the year the staff had to deal with a fridge breaking down, so ruining the prepared puddings. This was explained to us and when they arrived they were worth the wait. When the bill arrived the puddings had not been charged for due to this. Excellent customer service.
