The service staff were very friendly and polite.
The restaurant appeared to be very busy and there was a great atmosphere. The guy behind the bar is always very welcoming and full of beans and very passionate about the place which makes the whole experience better. Amazing food. Each course came out with perfect time inbetween.

The surprising roots of the Green Man
These are Green Men, symbols so ancient their origins are lost. Although the Green Man predates Christianity, he's often found in western European and British cathedrals that date from the eleventh century and later. Usually carved from stone, occasionally of wood, representations of the Green Man look down from ornamental carving at the joints of vaulting, watch from the lintels of Romanesque and Gothic arches, and peek from ornamental capitals high atop stone columns.
The Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript written in eighth-century Ireland, shows a few Celtic-looking, leaf-decorated faces among its capital letters, and, centuries later, the title pages of many of Martin Luther's works printed in Wittenberg, Germany, are decorated with the Green Man's likeness.
The earliest known representation of a leaf-surrounded head dates from A. In ancient Europe and in England, individual trees, as well as whole groves, were sacred. Their worship was common, and no wonder, since trees provided shelter, fuel, and food. Many legends about them persist, and a few bridge the gap between the old ways and Christianity, as in the story of St.
Martin of Tours.
