  11. We went last week and really enjoyed ourselves. The owner (Simon) and GM (Jesse) both came by our table and chatted with us. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive but not overbearing. My wife & I both had the Trolley Roast (it was pork that night) with Mushy Peas, Mashed Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts & Wild Mushrooms. The mushy peas were seriously delicious - I couldn't get enough of them - and was tempted to ask for more. Jesse also gave us a tour of the private club that's attached to the restaurant. Whisky aficionados will definitely want to check it out.
