We enjoyed our visit and would certainly book again. I loved the crepe suzette, I've never experienced having one cooked just for me at the table, very memorable. Thank you to all the staff. Freda

Our waiter, Michael was very laid back and while other service staff were rushed off their feet - he seemed to get others to help. The meal was excellent so congratulations to the team on an another superb Burns Night.
