    Food was so over priced and totally not worth it. I thought my partners was a child's meal. Service was dreadful considering it wasn't that busy. Was really excited about trying somewhere new and don't mind paying above average for good food but it wasn't worth the fifty pounds for 2 meals and one was so small it was unbelievable. Sadly won't be returning. Would rather go to McDonald's. Website gives the impression it is a forest glade with a tree house but in reality everything is plastic and the tree house is the second floor!

    Restaurant wasn’t busy but food took a long time to arrive. We drank a bottle and half of wine before food came. Ambience was ok. Overall was a nice dinner, but wouldn’t rush back.

    Lovely restaurant, beautiful decor inside and very good choice of food on the menu. The main meals we have chosen (tabbit and pheasant) were very good, but the starter (fried coliflower) was luke warm, hard and below average with 4 tiny florets for exorbitant price of £8.50 - so don't waste money on that starter. The worst experience was the staff. Young kids laughing out loud not paying attention to tables, food brought around, missing cutlery etc. No saying thank you or if any further assistance can be provided and this was when the place was nearly empty with maybe 10 dinners. Staff was a massive let- down with nobody who seem much over 18 years old. Re wine query if any white wine is European, the waitress said she did not know the wine menu. Would not go again because of the staff and bill of £100 for this experience was unreasonable.

    My friends and I came here Saturday afternoon and we were greeted and sat down instantly. The restaurant itself is stunning, the atmosphere was well balanced feeling both intimate and bustling. The service was great, we felt like old friends rather than customers and then the food, WOW. I can't recommend this place enough

    Very nice looking restaurant and food was nice. However, poor service, not sure if that’s because we were seated upstairs.

    From the moment we arrived for our reservation, the atmosphere wasn't very welcoming towards us and the whole place seemed to lack energy. Once our party was seated, we had a wait to place a drinks order, despite the restaurant being rather quiet. The drinks arrived fairly promptly after ordering. Next, the food order. When we tried to order the 'weekday' deal, we were told that it doesn't run on a Friday, which, as far as I am aware, Friday in in fact a weekday and the menu didn't specify otherwise. We ordered small plates, and all arrive bar one plate. We queried it with a server, who apparently went to locate it and then came back and asked us again which dish we said was missing, but that plate never came out. The final server who dealt with our bill (unfortunately didn't get her name) was extremely helpful when we said we never received that plate, despite someone going to get it for us and gave us a discount on the deal, as well as removing the service charge.

    Extremely disappointed, having searched for places and recommendations for our anniversary dinner I happened to stumble across this on instagram , I was immediately drawn in by the decor and the food . So I booked . When we got there we were left waiting to book in . When we did we were told table 3 was free and set off on an orienteering exercise to find table 3 with the waiter pointing in a vague direction . We weren’t escorted to our seats . We were then left for a while to explore the menu . I wasn’t impressed . The options weren’t vast and I found myself struggling for choice . We then found ourselves ready to order drinks but no one to take an order . Eventually someone came . However had no idea what draft beers were available, nor a clue between a larger shandy or a larger top / dash , frustratingly We eventually chose and received our drinks . Sometime later someone came to take our menus choice for us only to find that 3/4 of the options we wanted were not avaibale . If we had of known this in advance we most likely wouldn’t have ordered drinks and dinner else where ! The overall experience was disappointing, I barely ate my dinner as it was over powering and the taste wasn’t the best . My husband asked for rare steak in his Yorkshire wrap to receive it medium to well . We paid £70 bill and removed the service charge as I felt the service and the food was lacking any further gratitude . I begrudged paying £70 for an anniversary meal that took us over and hour to drive to . Very upset and underwhelmed

    Let down by the service. No food after 40 minutes. I asked a waitress how long the meal would be. She continued to serve other people and brought the food ten minutes later. Keep your patrons informed and check in with them 2 minutes after serving. Front of house staff walking around like zombies.
