It was just past noon, and very quiet, so I had no trouble finding a seat, and my food was with me very soon. I'd ordered the chicken schnitzel with fries, salad, and roast chicken mayonnaise - which sounded like an incredibly weird variation on the condiment, but which turned out to be subtle and savoury, complementing the chicken and fries very well.
The schnitzel was crisp and tender, albeit a little bland - I would have preferred a bit more seasoning in the crumb, but the mayonnaise helped to pep it up. The salad was a flavourful mix of leaves, sundried tomatoes, sunflower seeds and pesto dressing, and the fries were crunchy and satisfying.
