    This is a delightful restaurant set in a historic old church or schoolhouse. The wait staff is very friendly and the food was very good. If you need a place to sit eat and relax, this is it!

    We were sat at our table at 2pm & didn’t get our order taken until 3.15pm!!! Appalling service. We had to get our own drinks & menu from the bar. It was an extremely busy day due to the Six Nations final but that is no excuse for the poor service & lack of communication all round with management, staff & customers. The food was good when we eventually received it. But the overall experience ruined our day out.

    Table service was excellent. Staff attentive on a very busy day because of the rugby international. We booked for 1.00pm. Had to give our table up after two hours even though we were in a bar. That was rather tricky as the place was packed & I’ve difficulty standing. Unfortunately I wasn’t aware of that initially & wanted to continue drinking wine & coffees. Also the end of Italy v France match on tv before heading off to Aviva Stadium. I should have booked the table for 2.30pm 🤷‍♀️
