We came here one evening for dinner and it certainly did not disappoint! The bread for starter was so fresh and the ravioli was delicious. I had the most delicious pudding too. Staff were very attentive and atmosphere was cosy. Highly recommend

Hi Kimberley Apologies for the (way too) late reply. I went there dressed casually, so I would assume there shouldn't be too much of an issue if you showed up not dressed to the nines on NYE
