What a disappointment! The food was no way as good as it used to be .
Would I ever go back? The answer is no. I give them 6 months.

I live locally and love coming here. The food is incredible and I recently had the best duck leg I’ve ever had! The service was also better than last time. It appears the grumpy / unwelcoming manager is no more which is great! Couldn’t love the food more.

The ultimate neighbourhood restaurant - very informal, excellent food and highly professional staff. So nice to see everything cooked at an open kitchen right within the restaurant

We love the restaurant but the lack of staff waiting on you is frustrating. Took them 20 mins to come to our table and even those cocktails order.

Aside from the less than friendly manager, the food was exceptional. Simple food made using incredible produce. Healthy but tasty. We live locally so will definitely be going back. Our waitress was also lovely.

This is a truly excellent uncomplicated restaurant. Small scale menu beautifully cooked with an element of surprise. (My only complaint - minor - on a cold winter's evening was that the temprature in the main restaurant downstairs was a couple of dgerees too cold. People wearing outdoor wear etc. Easy to fix.)

Went on a very quiet Tuesday night. Menu wasn’t flashy - liver, skate, brill, potter crab, pork but wow, it was cooked exceptionally well. Bavette steak was one of the best I’ve had both in terms of flavour and cooking. Comfortable/cosy restaurant but slightly lacked atmosphere because it was so quiet but don’t let that detract you from going.

The food was fine but not great. We went for Sunday lunch and were very disappointed with the small amount of food we received - 2 roast potatos (which weren’t crispy unfortunately and neither was the Yorkshire pudding served with my beef). 2 very thin slices of beef. Staff were lovely but atmosphere but cold.

As always totally delicious. I hardly ever eat meat now but had the pork belly and it simply melted in the mouth. Potted crab delicious as always and so was the amazing treacle tart!
Fabulous

It’s simply just great great cooking! Nothing more to say really. Just delicious food made with tip top ingredients. Front of house are fab! We go regularly and I must say, our experience so far has been everything absolutely delish!

Delicious choice of dishes with a good emphasis on game. Simply cooked, but cooked to perfection. Quail starter was succulent and simple; the rabbit main course was fall-apart soft and full of flavour, and the devilled lamb's kidneys were tender and spicy, just wonderful.

We had a very special meal here on Saturday. It was a birthday present for two friends and we couldn’t fault anything. I really loved the understated decor complemented by excellent fresh cuisine. They were super knowledgeable about all the wines available. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant and will return very soon!

Noise level was quite high.... the acoustics could be reviewed or am i getting too old?
The meal was fab.
The issue was when we went to order a second bottle of the lovely Rioja, it was sold out! so we had to switch wine which of course was not as good!

The restaurant is very cool designed and the ambiance is nice. However the service is very straightforward and not friendly, the food is unique so probably not for everybody’s taste. We had a nice evening even if we are not 100% satisfied, we would give it another try as the menu changes.
