All very good. Only note is the wardrobe. When I took my jacket back, it was so stinky of fried food or kitchen smell that I thought the wardrobe was in the kitchen. After 3 days my jacket still smells...this is the thing that needs fixing as quite unpleasant. All the rest was good and we are happy

Discovered this by chance when searching for a restaurant near Gloucester road Millennium hotel. Managed to book a table for a Friday night the day before, admittedly at the end of November. Buzzing at 8 pm upstairs so we chose a quieter spot downstairs. Nice people and good food. Had a meal at a more expensive place the next day but this beat it hands down. We'll be back.

Beautiful romantic place. But the food was disappointing. The fish was overcooked and hard. The scallops were overwhelmed with the flavour of the oil that was used. For the prices we definitely expected better. We won't be going back.

This restaurant had been recommended to me by a friend, so I took my partner there for a date night. Initially she thought it was slightly too 'urban' in atmosphere but we both quickly relaxed as the food arrived. The food was excellent - as good as it had been built up to be - sea bass was moist and succulent, the duck melted in the mouth. Both of us were truly impressed and will definitely return. Highly recommended.

A very nice find while looking for a lunch place not too far from home. We were one of the first few to be seated and it was nice and quiet. The waiter/bartender looked after us and made me a fantastic Bloody Mary which is usually quite tricky to do. The food was very good and the waiter even suggested that we wait to order the dessert since we wouldn't quite know how full we would be after our 2 courses and he was spot on. The only downside was the annoying people who were sat next to us later half of our lunch but other than that I'd say this place is a great place to come for a nice lunch.

The food was delicious , I had the pork belly which melted in the mouth, the lamb was equally as good. Our group of 5 were surprised at the quality of the food. The beer was served in balloon wine glpasses , may be better if they invest in larger slightly sturdier glasses for chaps.
