    Great service, menu choice a little limited if you don't like fish :) Could do with a little more sauce with the sticky toffee desert. Ambience OK - Amusing to see single patron sleeping at his table! Overall felt that the meal and drinks were a little over priced

    Very nice cream tea, but scones came out, minus one so we had to ask for the extra one. Also, I'd say, too much chocolate, not sure about the chocolate milkshake.

    Very nice building and restaurant We ordered 2 starters chickens skewers was nice , roasted scallops fish starter was not warm at all and very little salsa Main Fillet steak was ordered medium/rare and came very rare and Luke warm (was grilled very well on the outside but left to rest to long and did not cook through ) spinach side was very tasteless Lobster linguine - this was again Luke warm and came with the chilli flakes and oil that was a good idea so it can be bespoke to every customer In summary we thought the service would have been on point as it was a Saturday night and restaurant was not full , disappointed when we tried to pay it took a while and they new we was leaving to catch a train at 11:20 and had to get my own coat out of the rack that was unattended on the entrance so we could make the train home. Overall a 2hr experience and not as expected and we will probably leave more feedback on other websites and need to consider ever going back.

    Gluten free afternoon tea was awful. Bread and scones so dry! We were turned away and told our table wouldn’t be ready for 20 mins when we returned we still had to wait at a overly crowded bar for 15 mins Our tea was serve and no milk was given and no one around to ask till 15 mins later Obviously over stretched themselfs! Felt sorry for staff

    My wife and I had a lovely meal to celebrate meeting 50 years ago. We had a champagne voucher and another voucher for £100 given by our son as a present. When we arrived we mentioned this to the waitress who had only been there three days. She fetched another waiter who insisted on taking our vouchers (this has not happened previously). We ordered and had a lovely meal and our waitress was charming. We were delighted with our meal. I asked for the bill and the waiter came over and said not to worry as the meal had been covered by our vouchers. I thanked him and said is there any money left over, he checked the bill and replied only seven pounds. I asked had the service charge been deducted, to which he replied yes. I then asked for the change and he said he could not give me any as we paid by voucher, but agreed to give me the voucher back. Questions: 1) why did he take our voucher prior to our ordering? 2) why did he not give me the bill when requested? I still do not have it. 3) why did he not inform us there was money left over before I challenged him?

    We booked for the jazz evening on 28 Feb. Very disappointed jazz band over an hour late, played for a short time then went for a break! Surprised management did not insist they play longer as we only had the music of about 20 minutes or so.

    We went on Jazz evening. Food, service etc great as normal but the band turned up an hour late, played for 45 minutes and then had a break. Then we left so not much of a jazz evening for us.

    We were attentively served at a nice table and soon provided with our tasty starter and drinks. I didn't like paying the service charge. It's part of the meal, are we supposed to serve ourselves from the kitchen> I bumped up our 2 x £19.17 meals plus 3 drinks to over £80

    Disappointing by comparison with Oxford Ivy where we have always had excellent food and service. Cold soup was returned to us after some considerable time still not hot. Waited ages for reorder of wine to arrive. The restaurant was not particularly busy but everything took ages to come.

    Love this restaurant and return often. But how odd (and irritating) to find that they don’t accept the OpenTable Dining Cheque which states quite clearly that it is ‘redeemable at any UK restaurant bookable on Open Table’. That is simply not true and OpenTable should reword their cheques.

    Great service and lovely food. My only complaint with this location is the level of noise. It’s really difficult the be able to hear others on your table speaking. I really hope they would look at more soft furnishings or sound panels as the design is lovely. But has significant hard surfaces which just reflect sound.
