What bar and bistro does not do an Aperol Spritz these days? This one doesn't ! I think it only survives from the residents of the adjoining hotel who can't afford the fine dining in the hotel. The music was provided by a TV tuned...More

We just popped in as we were passing for an evening meal. The menu while not extensive was appealing. The food was just about passable, nothing special, the fishcakes were soggy. My issue was with the main course. The starter was bigger. The portion was...More
