Had a lovely meal for our anniversary here. Never felt rushed as we enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in the bar then over our meal. Nice selection of choices and tasty food!

Came here to celebrate and was not disappointed! The service was fantastic and from the moment we walked in, we felt special. The service overall was efficient and all waiters were friendly. The food had me speechless. The presentation was so delicate and beautiful with the flavours to match. Would highly recommend as I was truly blown away by our whole experience.

Our overall experience was a really good one - food was amazing as always, however for the first time ever the service wasn't as amazing as it usually is.. In no way do I mean it was bad, far from it - it just wasn't up to the usually exceptional standards we have experienced before...

Just a last minute meal arranged with 2 friends and my wife. Hadn’t been for ages. Really liked the improvements made to the interior since we were last there. Lamb rump was outstanding. Oysters were excellent too.

A lovely meal preceded by cocktails. So good to be offered nuts and olives with our pre dinner drinks.
A novelty was an extra course on the menu for those who like us like to indulge now and then. A pre-starter…we chose oysters and whipped cod roe. Delicious.
The wine menu offered many wines by the glass, and even half bottles of a selected range.
One little thing…the driver of our party would have liked a choice of non alcohol beers; the one offered was ok. But Ghost Ship would have been better.

Got put straight to our table , we then waited ages to be offered a drink. Oysters were lovely . I had the scallops, very disappointing. They were tiny seen better in the local supermarket. Mains were good . Personally I feel that a really good maitre D is required to make that place special

We had the 6 course tasting menu & one had the wine pairing. The food was well cooked and very nicely presented with a good cross section of flavours, and the wine was a good variety.
Overall a good dinner and evening.

A lovely restaurant with great ambience. Service was very good and food was excellent. They had a great children's menu apart from the children's deserts which weren't that child friendly. We went for sunday lunch and would definitely go back again in the evening.

Good service and ambience with attentive staff. Food was okay but overall either not quite to the standard against the cost - or slightly over priced. Disappointing that the kitchen had run out of English mustard !

Cannot speak highly enough of the food and drink. Excellent diverse menu. Dishes simply prepared using the best ingredients and presented beautifully. Service perfectly paced. Really well assembled wine list with an outstanding feature of a premium selection by the glass made possible by the use of Coravin. Remarkably well priced. In short ‘simply excellent’.
