We had a family meal for a Special Birthday - after all the months of not being able to go out for a get together .
We weren’t disappointed . First Class service from the moment we arrived. Food was excellent and had something for everyone, including two teenagers.
Would definitely go back again. Thank you for our meal.

We love this restaurant and the atmosphere every time. My only issue now is that I am vegan and there was only 1 dish for vegetarians/vegans for the main dish. This is for health reasons so maybe restaurants need to start accommodation a little more for this requirement as I am not alone.

The entrance and the decor was very stylish and welcoming. All the tables were set out in a Covid safe way and we were both made to feel very comfortable.

We decided not to have a starter to same room for the fabulous sounding deserts. Instead we chose to begin with Pork Crackling and apple sauce and Queen Gordal Olives with sun blushed tomatoes and herbs. Unfortunately this is not what we got served. The olives were mixed standard olives with herbs, no tomato and not Gordal.

However we were certainly not disappointed with our mains although one slight negative point was that on both of our plates/dishes the meat element wasn't that warm.

The high light of our meal was definitely the deserts which were wonderfully presented and very tasty.

Our overall opinion was the meal was nice but certain elements were over priced. But we would definitely give it another. I forgot to mention that the service was excellent.

we both ordered the most expensive thing on the menu which was the tasting menu the courses were very small we would have been better off just ordering the courses and sharing them it would have been far better value . On asking to substitute a coffee for a Baileys at the end of the meal we were told it would be ok but then were charged for anyway service charge was also added we would recommend the ambiance but we wouldn't say it was value for money and the food was underwhelming.

The restaurant was laid out very nice and very safe. The food was ok although the steak was a little bland.
The service was the biggest problem. Drinks took along time to come and we had to rush our last drinks because of this as our taxi was waiting. I think if our waiter didn't talk so much rubbish to the point he refused to give us his name and he told us he was just a number then the night may have been better. He refused to describe a certain wine that we was interested in trying until we had ordered our mains. The drinks menu and food menu took a while to bought to the table and on several occasions we had to ask where our drinks order was as we waited at least 15 minutes for them to arrive.
Overall though it is a lovely restaurant.

First post COVID visit was excellent but this time it felt unsafe as too crowded and zero ventilation. Our dear waitress was also given an ill-fitting mask which she had to constantly touch to keep in place. This negates the purpose of the mask as any contaminants on the mask were transferred to anything that she had touch. We would feel more secure if there was a decrease in table numbers, increased prices for your viability and please ensure adequate ventilation.
