We ate here for my birthday back in January. Wow! It was beautiful. We had a table tucked away everyone, se we could all hear each other talking. The choice of drinks is huge and a very extensive menu. We are looking forward to going back soon

Fantastic meal and ambiance only spoilt by an un-chilled bottle of white wine. The attention to detail in everything other than the wine was absolutely fantastic. If you haven't been it would be unfair to spoil some of the surprizes.

Ate here in August with my husband and 3 children. All made to feel welcome by the staff despite our initial impression being that this was an adult restaurant. Ordered half lobster which was delightful & younger children were catered for really well. Food enjoyed by all and restaurant staff were happy to accommodate with the service top class. Would...

All the staff have a wide range of knowledge about the food and drinks they are serving and they are also very... More

Worth a visit. I would consider myself a steak snob and upstairs at the grill didn't disappoint. Steaks cooked beautifully; had rib-eye steak cooked to a perfect medium rate (more on the rare side but still good) with garlic and herb sauce and triple cooked chips. A little on the expensive side as have to order all sides and sauces... More

We hadn't booked a table but we were lucky and managed to get a table for 9:30, we arrived an hour early but they happily sat us at the bar for a drink. The biggest drinks menu I have ever seen, with pretty much every drink you could possibly want! We were given the food menu at the bar and... More

I visited this restaurant bank holiday Sunday in August after finding via google. We arrived slightly later then expected which the restaurant advised was no problem. We arrived and was greeting by a friendly gentleman on the front desk who took us upstairs to the bar area. This room was quite small due to the size however that didn't alter... More
