    Lovely restaurant, excellent staff and food. Service was quite slow but I think only because there was a large group in at the same time as us. They apologised for the delay. Would definitely go again.

    The dining room was pleasant with plenty of seating. The waiter was polite and friendly. We started with soup and a roll which was very nice followed by fish and tripple cooked chips. Fish was a small portion which was not fresh (frozen) it was ok probably too many chips as neither of us could finish them. We ordered desert which was disappointingly small. At over £65 for 2 people thought it expensive

    Staff were friendly enough, but not very attentitive. No coming over to check how our table was or if anything needed. In fact we had to holler them over a number of times. Starters were lovely. The chickpea curry, awful. It looked and tasted like a leftovers meal where you bung everything in. Sorry if that offends

    Ok so we tried to change the booking and it stated it was fully booked on open table. When we arrived there was 4 tables in the restaurant and like 30 free tables. It was completely dead no atmosphere at all! You could hear a pin drop in there. We got the starters and they were lovely. Olives and warm bread. Then the main that we ordered was called the butchers block. They didn’t have lamb so they changed it for duck. The duck was awful had green bits inside nearly made me sick when I tried it. Also we asked for our meat medium rare and it came out raw. Was so rare. My husband ate more then I did. After we left we were both sick it was awful. I would not go back. The staff were very friendly! The food however we did complain and they gave us a discount but it did ruin my husband birthday. We went down for the weekend so are not from the area I would not recommend going here. The atmosphere is dead and the food is not great

    Lovely food, wonderful staff and an extensive gin menu. We picked this place randomly and weren't sure what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised to find such a nicely decorated, clean and comfortable restaurant with a well thought out menu of bistro style food and more than 100 gins to choose from. The staff were really good humoured and made us feel very welcome. We would love to go back next time we are in the area.
