The menu sounded good but was a bit bland. In fact, the amuse bouche were the nicer bits, the rest was average. Service was good.

I had not been back to my favourite restaurant for a few months as I had intended to return for Christmas but it was not to be. I was so excited knowing I was returning to familiar surroundings.

My evening started already on a high note, when I found out that Tibor was going to be our waiter for our table. He certainly has grown very confident and was so pleased to bring us beautiful plates. He was supported by Kasia, the waitress alongside his service.
Our favourite table awaited us and it started well with a lovely glass of bubbly, only matched by exquisite food and so beautiful to look at. Once again, thank you for making our evening a truly wonderful experience and feeling so well looked after on each occasion.

テイスティングメニューの100ポンド・9皿のコースをいただきました。飲み物は別途ワインペアリングのby the glassのコースで100ポンドでした。生の桃やチェリーなどいくつかのフルーツにアレルギーがあったので当日申請したところ、不必要なメニュー変更をされてしまい、しかも変更されたメニューがあまり美味しくなかったことが残念でした。実際、メニューには私のアレルギー対象の果物は含まれていませんでした。しかしホール担当者が何度かキッチンに確認しにいき、最終的にはデフォルトのメニューで提供していただいてOKと合意したにもかかわらず、結局シェフがすべてのメニューからフルーツを取り除くか、フルーツ抜きのメニューに変更してしまったのです。9皿のうち確か2皿が完全にメニュー変更、2皿はデフォルトのメニューからフルーツ抜きで提供されました。
たとえば変更されたメニューのうち一つは蒸した白身魚に海藻?が絡まっていて日本風のだし汁がかけられたものだったのですが、だし汁はとても塩辛くて飲めないくらいでした。また、鯖のタルタルにリンゴとシソが添えられたメニューからはリンゴのみが抜かれてしまい、なんとも間の抜けた生臭い味わいになってしまっていました。また、このお店はシソ、わさび、Japanese artichokeなどの日本食材を多用しているのですが、前述のだし汁といい、Japanese artichokeが日本では何という野菜にあたるか尋ねても正確な回答が得られなかったことといい、日本食についてあまりよく知らないのにこれらの食材が使われてしまっている印象です。(ちなみにJapanese artichokeはチョロギでした。ごくごく小さく切ってあったのであまり存在感はなく、季節外れですがウドのような食感でした)
問題点ばかり記載しましたが、デフォルトのメニューを食べた夫はとても美味しいと言っていましたし、サービスはよく、特にワインペアリングは後半3皿のデザートまですべてワインを合わせてくる徹底ぶりで量もたっぷりでした。隣のテーブルが20人規模の宴会だったのでややうるさかったのですが、普段はもっと落ち着いて食事ができるのかもしれません。私の食事条件が特殊だったこともあり、おすすめできるかどうかの判断はやや保留としたいところです。

Booked for a birthday party and it was an excellent choice. Lovely ambience, starting at the bar for a introductory drink then settling in the restaurant for a wonderful meal. Service was a bit of a let down, apart from the restaurant manager who was attentive, the other staff appeared rather wooden which was a huge a let down for a Michelin-rated establishment.

Excellent lunch with friends we had the shorter tasting menu with the matching wines. The food was very good especially the mackerel tartare, which went beautifully with the Rivaner from Luxembourg. Alessandro, the sommelier had chosen some lovely wines to match the food and was very knowledgeable and happy to discuss all the wines with us. A great experience.

We had booked for a dinner under the Evening News offer. The starting Landon sparkling wine. Was good. The starters were really excellent. Some of the party chose Burratta gazpacho & the others a mackerel. Both were excellent, although quite small in quantity but the flavours just burst in your mouth. The mains we had Hake n others the duck, both were excellent. The dessert also was exceptional. The Sommelier was pleasant n gave a good selection of the wine. Only thing that spoiled the evening for us all was the main waiter for our table who was surly n did not smile at all. He from the very beginning thought he was doing us a favour. Very haughty , I felt like complaining there n there, but the other waiters n staff were good n smiled & very pleasant.
Overall the ambiance was average, but I would say the food is excellent n would recommend it for that.

What a lovely evening!! This restaurant served superb food, even on a £35pp deal. Lots of extras before and after the 3 set dinner courses. However, what made our evening really special were the staff. ALL of them were fantastic! We were brilliantly looked after by Hareo and Alessia but my special thanks go to the sommelier, Greta. I am old enough to remember when condescension was a part of their job description. She is the exact opposite - kind, helpful and understanding that not everyone can afford a £100+ bottle of wine.
Afterwards we had a drink on the terrace. Despite the restaurant closing down, Miguel and Barbara spent time talking to us and offered brilliant travelling tips. It was late and this was definitely beyond their call of duty. Much appreciated. Thank you!
If I were to be ultra picky, it would suggest that the main course should be a little bit bigger than the starter. This would keep any males, needing more food, happy. For us (two women), the amount of food was just right.

First impressions was a cool and calm setting with crisp white tablecloths. There was an option to sit inside or outside on the veranda where the awning could be adjusted depending on the weather. We had the lunch menu which was good value. Sourdough bread with caramelised butter was crunchy and warm. Tiny garlic infused onion tarts also went down very well. Starters looked Devine and was fresh with subtle flavours. The main courses again were well presented and colourful with a successful medley of flavours. No room for desserts although we were served some delicious cake like items which finished the meal off nicely. I will be back for the a la carte next time.

Why is is that some Michelin starred restaurants load you up at the start of the meal with large chunks of bread and several amuse bouche courses, is it to disguise the fact that the portions are on the small side? Starters of crab and mackerel were very good, but both small. My wife’s Dexter beef was excellent and to be fair a decent portion size, however my Turbot main although cooked to perfection was disappointing, when you pay nearly £40 a pop for a main course you expect a little more than a standard serving of fish marooned in the centre of the plate looking a little lost with nothing else around it but a drizzle of Dashi tea broth to keep it company. For the price it should have been better.
