I have been going here with the family every couple or months or so, and have never been disappointed. The food on every visit has been fantastic, and the waiters, and the owner treated us like regulars from the very beginning. We have been going a lot due to this brilliant atmosphere they create and will continue to. If you... More

If the music played matched the elegance of the food and service the it would be perfect. We had a Robbie Williams for most of our meal

Hi Andrew P Thank you for your review we appreciate your lovely comment about are elegant food and service but are quite confused with the music part as we have a iPod system with many different types of music with only 2 Robbie Williams songs. We find it harsh that you have given us a average based on the music... More

The portion sizes are perfect. One of our party ordered the lemon sole and despite the generous portion size had to finish it. The ambience location attentive... More

Even though the menu does not have vegan options the owner and the chef presented a great vegan 3 course meal. They were attentive and the owner went out of his way to make our visit hassle free. The vegan and veggie food is amazing and very reasonable for what we got and our experience we had. Would highly recommend.

You can always tell a good restaurant when you are greeted by the owner, handshakes and welcomes all around and the same again from the staff. A well run place will have great food and service and the restaurant certainly fits this. Wide ranging a la carte or some fixed priced options well priced. Good wholesome cooking. Drinks are a...
