Had an amazing time here for my birthday. Lovely decor and atmosphere, I’ve forgotten the name however the lady with the short hair was so lovely and vigilant! We just ordered the set menu and was reasonably priced and portions were decent sized as well, went home very full and happy, and will definitely go back at some time in the future!
