                                                  We were there for lunch. The dining room is large and airy, with plenty of space between tables. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the service was excellent. I can't wait to go back there, but it might be a while now with the restrictions in January.

Love the refurb and the colour scheme in the place. Restaurant is now upstairs and it’s so cosy. Food cooked to perfection and portions just right. Will be back.

                                                  My wife and myself we went to celebrate our 11th anniversary. I have to say that’s a venue we normally use for our celebrations due to the quality of the food and service. In fact if my memory is correct we were seating on the same spot where we originally celebrated our daughter’s Christening.

                                                  Very good food at appropriate prices. Service not at the same level. Got a table next to the entrance to the kitchen, hence a lot of noise, light and different smells.

                                                  Great experience except that they couldn’t locate my booking from Open Table. Otherwise very nice and would recommend.

                                                  Went to dinner on Thursday and found out cocktails were half price and they were wonderful. There was a surprise tasting menu but decided to order off the menu. The courses took a while to arrive but everything was prepared well and flavorful.

                                                  We went for my fiancé’s birthday. Food was great but starters are a bit “simple”. A bit pricey but would recommend.

                                                  A little disappointed. We made this reservation for my fathers birthday based on the menu on their website. When we arrived the menu was completely different. I'm fully aware that restaurants of this standard change their menus often but they need to keep their website up to date.

                                                  Nice menu with lovely food. Food was tasty and well presented with good size portions. Very good pace to the meal and never felt rushed. Wine was a bit too expensive for what you got. The table service was excellent.

                                                  I have to say this was the nicest meal , I have had out in a very long time . The service was brilliant the food was amazing , especially the dessert sharing plate and there was a good variety on cocktail menu . Again nicest meal I have had from starter to finish everything was delicious . Staff are genuinely helpful and friendly and there is a really good vibe . I have been a few times before but going to make it my business to go more often ! And will highly recommend also

                                                  I booked a table for 17 people,(big work crowd over from Germany and US) however, it was v tight and the heat in the restaurant was unbearable, my manager asked for his steak to be cooked a certain way medium to well done but they declined which is not a good impression and I think if you are paying for a steak you should be able to get it cooked the way you want. staff are very nice and I do like the restaurant but my manger was put off by the heat, over crowed table and not been able to get the food cooked the way he liked it., he will not go to the restaurant again.
