From entry into the restaurant until we left. The people, the food, the wine was outstanding. Can not fault anything.

One last lunch before lockdown! Was fabulous as expected. Meat fruit was a highlight, and also loved the bread! Tipsy cake and the tamarind tart were a great end to the meal.

Outstanding quality of food. The depth of flavour and work that goes into every morsel is evident. As a treat or special occasion I would highly recommend.

Excellent meal and lovely service and surroundings. Salamagundy is particularly good.

Expensive. £300 for two with four glasses of wine and a shared pudding.

We were unfortunately very underwhelmed by Dinner. The food was tasty but not memorable. I was hoping for exciting food, cooked to perfection, but sadly the food we ordered was not that exciting!!

Food was excellent but the standard of service was below what I would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. Also the ambience/ decor was more akin to a budget bistro rather than a fine dining restaurant.

The starters and desserts were delicious but I have had better steaks for half the price in my local restaurant. The drinks were way overpriced £22.50 for a vodka and tonic! The best thing about this restaurant was the service the staff could not do enough for you, never been treated so well anywhere fantastic staff.
