Took my wife for dinner after Wimbledon and mentioned it was her birthday and they really took care of us and made her evening. Personalised menu with Wimbledon theme was a great touch. Great food (and great Chardonnay!)
Would definitely go back

Great food that was reasonably priced and a nice atmosphere. The service was excellent, from pouring the wine whenever it needed pouring to collecting plates at exactly the right time -it could not be faulted. We really enjoyed our pre Wimbledon lunch!

The team were very attentive and nothing was a problem.

My second visit because I couldn't wait to get back for my favourite lunch. Pea and coriander gazpacho followed by the guinea fowl. I would have that everyday if I could. This time I also had dessert of pinapple carpaccio. Fragrant, light and refreshing on a hot summer's day. The homemade bread is a bonus too, packed with flavour. The perfect meal!

The food was excellent and very attentive service. Good sized portions for French food. They came round with trays of delicious breads..... cheese, olive , chorizo and more.
Also I asked for a nice table away from the door with comfy bench seats and they reserved an amazing corner round table which was perfect.
Can’t fault it at all but it is quite pricey. Lovely cocktails and some reasonable priced wines hidden amongst the very expensive ones.
A definite new favourite restaurant.

Excellent, attentative service (didn't need to fill our own champagne glasses once). Simple sounding dishes with the small touches and additions to make take then to a new level. Extensive wine list. The extra light, mousse-like Pea a d Corriander Gazpacho was esoecially refreshing. We'll definitely be going back to try the other dishes on the menu.

We were there for our anniversary and were very well looked after. Food and service was excellent. It was a Tuesday night so wasn't very busy, only a few tables taken so was missing a little "atmosphere". Not really much you can do about that other than go a different day! Would recommend and will go back.
