We had a really nice afternoon in the restaurant. It was very clean and all tables were separated with Perspex boards. The atmosphere was really friendly.
Our waitress was lovely and there was a great choice on the menu. A really good offer too with fixed price 2 or 3 course meals.
The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. My lamb was perfect and served with lovely pea and mint.
There is a good choice of wine and we also got a free glass of wine too. A bonus for us as we are not wine connoisseurs and the free glass was nice so we bought a bottle.
Can’t wait to return

Fab. Table next to window looking over looking the courtyard, which was appreciated as dining on my own. Greated with a welcome drink. Carpacio was lovely and fresh and the teak was heaven on a plate. Both the Sauvignon blanc and Cotes du Rhone were morish. The ambience was nice (obvs because of covid guidelines no background music which was shame). Only thing about the service was no-one checked if everything was ok with my main course (although I wouldn't have been shy in saying if steak not good). Overall would highly recommend and would go back. Thanks Angels and Bagpipes for a lovely dinner x

Back after 2 years celebrating our Wedding Anniversary where we held our wedding breakfast. Beautiful starters, goats cheese/beetroot & chicken liver parfait(more baby leaves required on both tho). Superb mains, fillet steak & rump of lamb and fantastic desserts, banana mousse & the cheese board. Excellent service throughout the meal. Highly recommend.

A perfectly Covid secure restaurant. Staff are attentive and knowledgable. Food is delicious and the menu caters for everyone. With adjustments for special diets.
It is obviously quieter , but that has pros and cons. Would thoroughly recommend

The food and service were absolutely excellent. The fillet steak was delicious and perfectly medium rare as requested.

Hot roast salmon, pate ... on the menu was great but needs a bit of punctuation corrected. Its actually a roast salmom pate ... no comma needed. And it is not hot. But it was delicious anyway.

The only aspect that was not so good was nothing at all to do with the restaurant. One extremely loud customer made thinking impossible... until said customer left. Then we could both talk and think.

Delicious food in what felt like a very safe environment with screens between tables. Helpful, friendly waiting staff but the lack of background music, as decreed by government, definitely impacts on ambiance. I would have thought that the measures taken to separate diners, safely, would be sufficient to allow music to be played.
