    The food was good and was served quickly, however, I was very disappointed with the service. I certainly felt cutlery and our bill were thrown at us and the staffs' manners were very lacking. Both doors to the restaurant were wide open resulting in the diners and the food getting cold quickly. Allegedly this was due to the need to keep the airflow for Covid.

    We had a lovely lunch: my cheese fondue was superb, the GF carbonara too and the pizza could have done with being smaller but more thicker topping. The service was excellent, the staff very attentive and helpful.

    Well organised, we had pre-booked but had to join the queue with others who hadn't however the manager soon asked for those that had booked to go first. Service was a little slower than before lockdown but the food just az good. We will be going again soon.
