A wee gem
Christmas menu was amazing. Baked Camembert was so tasty. Duck main course was amazing. Very different than standard pre theatre options which was great
Can’t believe I’ve stayed so close to this place and never been! Fantastic service, the food was delicious and the decor and ambience were magical. I will definitely be back soon.

There is some outdoor seating for the warmer months or the more hardy al fresco diners.
