    Tasty food and friendly staff but the front of house organisation isn't working yet - bit of a muddle

    The food was absolutelyoutstanding with incredible flavour combinations and we will be trying the sister restaurant. Everyone was very friendly and service was good but had to shout across the restaurant to ask for our bill. Otherwise it was outstanding.

    Superb food - all incredibly fresh. Some of the sweetest oysters I've ever tasted; a glorious bream dish, firm and gently smokey; the big savoury tang of rhubarb hoisin with perfect grilled squid; stunning, firm monkfish and turbot, each exquisitely sauced... and the desserts?! Oh, wow. Great wine list of a sensible length and price range. Staff attentive and clearly genuinely enthused by the food. An excellent evening was had - definitely one for a return visit, soon.

    I dined for my solo birthday lunch. The staff were welcoming, friendly, polite and informative on every food item. The buffalo oysters were a dream and tasted absolutely delicious. Cocktails were also a hit. Looking forward to future dates.

    Beautifully cooked food with lots of skill at show. Oysters were stunning and the Turbot in a rich chicken sauce was sublime. It’s pricey with small portions and the music was too loud and could have been chosen better. We had drum and bass which I don’t mind but not when I’m eating. Staff were excellent. Go.

    Food was absolutely stunning. The grilled squid so so tender. Love the oysters, although hot sauce could be separate. The monk fish cooked very well. The Navarin delicious. The bream with smoked vinegar had an amazing flavour. Thanks!

    Food was lovely; oysters (raw and fried w/ delicious ranch dressing) and amazing sides (mash w/guinness gravy and bbq’d cabbage). I would have given a higher rating but I was very disappointed that the lunch menu on their website wasn’t available. Apparently it’s only served on weekdays though the website doesn’t mention this. I came to try the much-lauded oyster pie on the lunch menu but as I came on a Saturday they didn’t serve it.
