Made welcome and ate on the outside
Terrace. Despite being away from the main room we had good service from the staff. No rushing us. No over long delays. The food was very tasty from the whipped roe with radish through our starter and main courses.

On arrival we were promptly offered water and aperitifs. We were advised on how to combat the extensive menu. I had bought a bottle of my own and we ended up ordering another at the restaurant. The waiting staff were so accommodating and the female bartender was so talented, a great selection of cocktails. It was a lunch time remember. Thank you clipstone it was outstanding!

Smashing little restaurant very relaxed with interesting menu choices & excellent wine options which you can expect when one of the owners is related to a well know wine critic. The staff know the menus inside out & were really helpful.

Lovely fine dining experience tucked away from the maddening crowds recommended via Michelin star guide. Staff friendly knowledgeable and attention to detail just perfect! Great food, wine and cocktails would defo recommend and although not up there with the Michelin star but a rosetted restaurant you will not be disappointed

Overall a pleasant dinner, good food and very good service. The flavour combination was good but I found some of the plates could have been more balanced, eg adding some spice/peppery element to the tempura dish, swapping the sweetcorn for something more anice-like in the octopus dish, add acidity to the monkfish to balance the buttery sauce and more vinegar to the house pickles, which could have also been presented in a more appealing way on little bowls rather than flat on a plate.
The white wine list by the glass was rather sweet/fruity. It would be great to add another dry peppery option would provide more choice than just the Soave.

Wonderful food, really lovely staff who have real pride in what they do. We booked a table for 4 outside on the street and were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves under a high level heater which made the experience very pleasant on one of our less warm summer evenings. The menu always includes a range of adventurous snacks and four starters, as well as mains. We ordered a selection of the snacks, all the starters, and couple of the mains to share between the four of us, that gave everyone a fabulous range of things to taste.
