    I went here for a business lunch last week and it was perfect. We sat outside, such lovely surroundings with water fountains nearby. The wine was excellent - and as expected, a great list of both wine and champagne. Delicious food - the goats cheese tart was particularly wonderful! Great service and really good value. I will definitely return - I think this would also be a great place for drinks after work.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our first experience here. It's a relatively small, casual venue, which we liked. Service was outstanding, food delicious and an extensive drinks menu with plenty of champagne choices if that's what you are after. We just had a nice bottle of wine, and prices were very reasonable. Two of us were celebrating birthdays and they went out of their way to make it special. Really glad we discovered this venue. As it's quite small, would advise to book a table in advance. Would definitely go back!

    After I left I checked the bill again and realised that they had added 25% service charge!! Either that’s a mistake, which is bad enough, or it’s deceptive. Either way a miss.

    Slightly disappointing even though the service was good. The burgers were fairly standard, and the chips undercooked. Scallops were very good, but squid and chorizo starter whilst generous, was more stir fried than grilled. Perhaps more of a place to drink than eat (impressive wine list).
