                                                        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.

                                                        Fab food and ambience... superb..... Managed to make a last minute booking on the lead up to Xmas. 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 value on a Sunday. Monkfish to die for with tasty sides. My dining partner loved his steak. Will definitely return.

                                                        Great service with Marco amazing with our 3 year old. Food was lovely but Pork belly cooked in fennel marinade which wasn’t called out in the menu which put someone off that meal. Others all delicious.

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.

                                                        Great food and service, a little quiet for a Saturday night but probably due to a large concert on nearby.

                                                        Very friendly staff. Nice food. Great location. Period house vibe is nice. We'll have to give the tapas bar a go next time.

                                                        Good variety in options. Presentation of food was very good. Staff very attentive without being intrusive.

                                                        The evening dinner with friends was good bar one aspect, the "slow-cooked rack of lamb" was disappointing; not slow cooked, quite tough pink lamb chops. Everything else was v good.

                                                        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.
