Came here a few times with my boyfriend. It is very romantic. The atmosphere and lighting is just right. The french merlot is to die for! and the food is amazing. i tend to get the pasta and my boyfriend tends to get more fish dishes. Never had any complaints. There service is also excellent. Will always remain a favourite.

All the courses were prepared and served to a high standard and I could not fault the level of service... More

Went with 3 work friends and were all delighted with 3 courses for £10 menu. Not only was this extensive and offered excellent value but portions were so generous that the fact there was only cinnamon ice cream or tea /coffee/limoncello for dessert didn't matter. Having a variety of dishes on our table inc pate, chicken wraps and mushrooms for... More

I like this place. Nice atmosphere, very good and attentive service. Had the duck salad to start, ordered pink and was overlooked and chewy. I didn't complain so that's my problem, I was given plenty of opportunity to do so. Had the lamb for main, and more than made up for the starter. Beautifully cooked, tender and delicious. I do...
