    The à la carte menu is limited, which is good. Much better to have fewer dishes prepared to a high standard than an extensive choice but with only average quality. The choices available were a bit unusual for us but this forced us in to choosing dishes we wouldn’t normally. We were glad this was the case as the dishes were delicious. It is a shame the restaurant, on a Friday, evening was relatively quiet. However even with only a few tables taken one could imagine it could be quite noisy when full.

    Great Head waiter and chef. Food and wine choices were excellent. Shame some of the other guests didn't respect 'casual business' as a dress code but that's not the restaurants fault.

    Unfortunately only one other couple dining that lunchtime, which meant little atmosphere, although the venue in lovely. The food was excellent in quality, presentation and flavours, staff all excellent and friendly, cleanliness excellent too - a lovely birthday celebration with extra small touches. Only one thing negative we both felt, the potato slice was too hard for us to appreciate the flavour, maybe meant to be that way, so I did not mention at the time.
