A lunchtime outing. We had chosen the place...
Reviewed 1 months, 11 days ago

"A lunchtime outing. We had chosen the place because it was a roof top restaurant. The day we went it rained !! . However after we had eaten the sun came out and we had the opportunity to sit outside. A lovely place to be. The tables are a bit on the small side. We were seated elbows next to the bar, our bottle of wine was left there for safe keeping, but within reaching distance. Not that we had to pour any as the service was bang on. A busy place, city people popping out for lunch. The portions are generous. My side dish of Jersey potatoes was enough for three, the lettuce leaves served with my quiche would have fed a rabbit for two days. All in all a good outing. Would we go back yes, sitting outside next time."
