No one asked how our meal was going. The afternoon sun comes into the window and if your facing the window the sun is harshly in your eye making it uncomfortable. Would suggest you put blinds up to help with that

Service can be a little clunky at times, but it’s still early days and I’m sure it will improve. That said, the staff are welcoming and friendly. The quality of the food is excellent with ample sides served with all meat selections. Highly recommend you give them a try.
