    We arrived five minutes before our time and were told we were early so could go up to the top floor and have a drink. Surely the table would have been laid? £25 and 15 minutes later we sat out our table in the brasserie. I faced the wall of cluttered plants as we had a table for two, slightly too close to the people on both sides as I could hear all they were discussing. We ordered starters and mains. The duck salad was well presented and tasted lovely. The salmon was very thinly sliced and looked opaque. The lemon was in muslin which prevented it from being squeezed. Unfortunately the bread, which looked delicious, could not be tasted as the salmon was too overpowering. The mains were fish cakes and courgette linguine. We ordered a side of chips which must have been triple cooked before we arrived but left under a heater, as they had dried out and tasted of the oil they were cooked in. The pasta was tasty but lacking in amount. After a few years of waiting and thinking we would be in for a treat the hype was not worth the money. We felt as though the scripts had been learned for effect, without genuine feeling. We will not rush to return.

    Food and atmosphere is lovely, really enjoyed our brunch. My only negative is where we were seated at the very back of the restaurant in an empty corner (it later filled) - apart from that little issue which made us feel like we'd been hidden away - every moment after that was perfect.

    We came here for our wedding meal and had a really fantastic evening! The service is always amazing and the food is incredible. The only small downside was my partners vegan main was ever so slightly bland but it was rectified really quickly when we mentioned it. As always, we will be back! 😁
