    This is a very stylish venue. The food is very good and some dishes are outstanding. The sweet potato in particular was amazing and I don't even like sweet potato normally. However, it doesn't come cheap - this is more of a special occasion place. The service in general was excellent - the waitress was very good. The main drawback was that we felt rushed to place our order and the food came out too fast. The dishes ordered come out in groupings. Last time I came here the groupings came out with a small gap inbetween. This time the groupings all overlapped so there were no breaks at all. This means that the meal was over in about an hour which is a short meal given that it's not a cheap place. This spoiled the overall experience for me and made it seem like fast food rather than a high class restaurant. Although the food is good it did make me reconsider if I'd come back as it doesn't feel like value for money if the experience is over in a flash. I would recommend it to a friend to try as it is an experience but I would warn them to ask for breaks in between the dishes coming out.

    We had such a lovely stay and dinner here. The price of the food though could absolutely be more reasonably priced. That’s the only reason I gave it 3-4 stars.

    Wonderful venue . Very unusual, quirky and special feel . Afternoon was lovely ! Not too fancy where you don’t like half the sandwiches or cakes it was just right. Good selection of the classics like banoffie pie and a blondie . Very good value for money and the staff couldn’t do more for you loved it .

    Great service, amazing food, great ambience. The music was a little too clubby (even for someone in their mid 30s). Will certainly go again as they didn’t have the black cod on the menu this time

    Absolutely incredible. Staff are so attentive and have such great knowledge of all meals they offer. Honestly couldn’t have imagined the birthday meal that we attended to have been any better than it was made here, I will be returning and I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants 5* treatment/ service. Thank you so much.

    Intimate Hen gathering. Was very nice first time experience, afternoon tea was lovely, only thing is the blueberry/lemon scone didn’t taste of either of these flavours but taste nice. Cocktails were very expensive. Toilets needed a little touching up but overall the experience in general was lovely.

    The fire pit restaurant is lovely however work was being carried out somewhere within the hotel so at times it was difficult to have conversations as you could not hear. This information was not shared with me before booking or when I came to the restaurant which is disappointing. Staff on the day also did not apologise for the inconvenience. Food was lovely and birthday touches were nice.
