“There’s nothing a chef loves more than to be constantly challenged to produce his best. Our guests expect scintillating food, and I make sure we live up to that expectation.”

Delicious wine doesn’t need to be expensive, but it has to be well chosen. With our own extensively-stocked wine cellar, you can make your selection from a superb list that offers great value as well as fabulous vintages. Our Front-Of-House Manager will be pleased to guide you and offer his advice.
