Excellent meal and staff were very upbeat despite the circumstances (covid restrictions). Sad to see a great restaurant half empty though - will be back ASAP once things open up again! I lied the way the waiter engaged with my nephew who has autism - not patronising, engaged him in conversation, and went out of his way to obtain mushrooms for his steak. The crab cakes and steaks we had were excellent but the food highlight of the night was the chocolate torte on a biscuit base with caramel ice cream and peanut butter sauce.

This is the first time we’ve visited since the place opened after refurbishment.
Wow, decor is lovely, staff very attentive whilst adherent to all the covid rules and the food was really delicious.
Highly recommend the tomato and mozzarella starter and halibut main course, also a coffee after dinner is a must to sample the complimentary tablet with the coffee yum yum.
Can’t wait to come back in the new year to visit when you’re open again.

Food was very good and staff very nice. Not very Christmassy. Couple of trees but no other decorations so that was disappointing. Not even a bit of tinsel on the bar. Lighting was very bright.

Very pleasant lunch there. Service efficient and although a short menu there was enough to choose from. Only criticism would be was that some portions were more generous than others.

It was very cold at our table thought it was slow between courses, but food was lovely and hot when we got it, I would probably guess the problems were due to the place just opening up again after lockdown but I would certainly go back when things are back to normal

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal which was excellent and (even having opted for the two course special) substantial. The staff were extremely pleasant and efficient and we were really impressed by the refit which had taken place since our last visit here in its previous incarnation. We were also impressed by how safe we felt in these Covid times: loads of spacing and sanitisers. We'll definitely be back!

I had chicken Kiev and berry Eton mess, both delicious. Partner had pork and apple terrine and salmon to follow both of which he said we're good. We had coffee to follow which was good also.

Brand new, beautifully decorated, great service, varied menu and everything we ate was cooked to perfection.

Can’t wait to try again when we are ‘grown up enough’ to enjoy a couple of drinks from the extensive wine and cocktail list.

Would highly recommend.
