The service was great and the meal excellent..we chose the early “Bistro”menu Garlic bread the best ever!!!! Who raves about garlic bread? You will when you try it! Emily chose the ribs.. a very generous portion much enjoyed and I had the Thai curry.. subtle flavours delicious and beautifully presented. We couldn’t do justice to the Baileys cheesecake as we were so full.
