    Expensive. £18 for a gin and tonic and bottle of beer. I guess the prices are expected around the area!

    It is horrible! Dover sole, hard and chewy, i don't even understand how they managed it.

    Save some money, ask for the service charge to be taken off your drinks bill... Say that you will pay a cash tip and then just don't.

    Отличный сервис: упала салфетка, не успел опустить глаза в поиске ее- тебе уже подают новую; за яблочный тарт можно родину продать(вкуснее просто не бывает); стейк подвёл: жестковатый;устрицы-вкусно!
