    Service was lovely and quick, and the majority of the food was excellent. Downsides of the visit was a roast potato being raw in the middle and the blaring music, which seemed more suited to a nightclub and not a high end restaurant.

    We came to celebrate our daughters graduation and it was absolutely perfect from start to finish. The location is stunning, food was delicious and beautifully presented and the staff were friendly and welcoming, attending to our every need. Our waiter Rashid made us feel very welcome. The restaurant went the extra mile bringing out a special dessert for our daughter marking her celebration, we did not ask for this and it was a lovely touch.

    Daughter’s graduation meal so we wanted to go somewhere‘special’. This venue has the initial wow factor but sadly that was where it ended. Service mediocre, food very poor, tiny portions of flavourless food, mains all lukewarm warm and bland, husband had a hair in his meal 🤢. Waitress apologised and the food was replaced but only after we’d all finished our meagre plates. Dessert was a sliver of again flavourless cheese with 2 oatcakes which totally overpowered the tastebuds due to the amount of pepper/chilli. A fingernail of honey or was it chutney … so small we couldn’t tell. A bottle of Prosecco was brought at the end as an apology for the ‘hair’ but as 3 were driving and the other 3 didn’t want anymore to drink we left it. Very disappointing experience and wouldn’t go again.

    I love how accommodating and attentive staff were as it was my graduation meal so they really helped make it an even more memorable and enjoyable experience. We dined using the set menu priced at 37.50 GBP per person which was amazing value for money. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food as it was flavoursome and beautifully presented. I wish I remembered the staff’s name but I got carried away with a few glasses of wine courtesy of the staff who even brought out a surprise desert to celebrate my academic achievement. They even brought out a second for photoshoot purposes!

    It took us almost 3 hours to complete a 3 course meal. Kitchen unable to keep up with demand. They apologised saying that they have 2 parties going on. Surely they knew about in advance but it seems no action taken towards ensuring customer experience is not damaged
