"Finger licking ribs!"
8.0 Cuisine 8 | Service 8 | Atmosphere 8

We had a fab 3 course lunch on Saturday, 7 October 2023. The stand-out dish for me was the Korean sticky BBQ ribs... Oh my goodness they were delicious! I'd go back just for those ribs again. And we finished off with the deep fried ice-cream, because when last have you seen that on a menu!?
