    Excellent lunch tasting menu. Every dish was a surprise, well executed and delicious. The cod dish, Iberico pork dish and celeriac dish were stand out for me but I could not fault any dish and at £75 real value for money. We took the extra cheese dish for £15 supplement and was well worth it. Great selection of wine and cocktails too. The Chef Ben came out to see us too making the lunch even more memorable for us 4 friends.

    Good food, well presented. Unfortunately let down with service, the waiter recognised my partners Birthday, having updated it in the booking but then she had to watch other birthday attendees get a birthday “treat” presented to them and she was forgotten. Difficult to pick up the food description with strong accented waiter and waiting staff clothing looked over worn with stains. Walked away frustrated having tasted good food.

    Service was fabulous. We each had 3 courses of which 2 were amazing. Had a great bottle of Rully which was reasonably priced. Overall with service the meal was GBP 325, which very pricey.
