    New Autumn menu. Every dish we had was a delight See menu, all dishes have interesting ingredients that work well.

    Unfortunately we were sat in the corner away from other customers so lacked a bit of atmosphere. Also to call chips cooked in beef dripping when they are really fries similar to what you get at McDonald’s is stretching the imagination. Bring back chips please
