Inventive and flavoursome dishes - set tasting menu but if you like food you will enjoy as we did.

A well balanced, regularly changing, seasonal tasting menu with delicious options to 'upgrade' various dishes.
Excellent idea. Wonderfully executed.
(My date was 20mins late, and as certain as I am this hindered their flow of service...they were incredibly gracious about it...so extra thanks for that).

Gorgeous food and atmosphere. Having been before a few years back it was a real experience. This time it all felt rushed. Each course felt very quick and took away from the tasting menu experience. We weren’t asked about our drinks till after the first course was served. It was slightly disappointing given the price tag.

Everything was absolutely perfect, from the incredible tasting menu (one vegetarian and one meat eater) to the wine pairing, and amazing service.
Would 100% come again and recommend to others.

We went for my partner’s birthday. The food was absolutely delicious and service staff lovely. One had the regular menu and one did the vegan menu. The veg options often feel like scraps or after thoughts and not a real meal when doing set menus at other restaurants but not here. This was a proper delicious meal for both of us. We each did the weekly wine pairing which was lovely. This was our first time but we will definitely be back.

Took my parents here for my mum’s 75th Birthday. She loved the experience. The menu was interesting/tasty, wine delicious, presentation thoughtful and the service friendly/diligent. Highly recommended!

We had high expectations given a number of the reviews and understood that it was a tasting menu. Significant gaps between each course in over 2+ hours spent there and the staff whilst pleasant were not particularly attentive. We thought that when we were asked if there was a special occasion that there may have been some recognition of our anniversary. Nothing at all. Overall, we felt it was very much style over substance. Alas we won’t be returning.

Food was interesting and tasted good and the place is cute and intimate, didn’t think it was nearly worth the cost and the service was a bit awkward, but probably difficult due to masks

Delightful. Amazing seasonal food, I believe the menu changes every week. Lovely service. They put a little discrete candle on my dad's dessert plate after I told them it was his birthday. Would definitely go back!
