Good food, attentive staff

We didn't expect to get in as we turned up on a Friday night without booking. I'm so glad we did. Shared the Chateaubriand which was cooked perfectly. Great deserts and the staff were very attentive. I requested part of my steak reheated as it had cooled down. Not complaining as this was my fault... read more

Dined here last week as a birthday celebration...party of ten..there is a choice of a two or three course menu..very good value if on a budget or the normal menu...we all opted for the latter..allthough not a huge selection..most tastes and preferences catered for...between us we sampled most off the starter selection...scallops were excellent..and the poached pears and sweet pot...

We stumbled on this place during an overnight stop in Plymouth. The service and ambience were excellent, the staff attentive without being overbearing, the food reasonably priced (a little more than some of it's local competition) and of excellent quality, with sensible portion sizes...apart from the mixed Olives appetiser - a tiny bowl with 14 stone in olives was less...

Had a business diner here and was very pleased with the experience. Nice staff and the food was very good. Nice atmosphere as well, both the interior, as well as the exterior of the building. Worthwhile to remember for future trips to Plymouth.

I ate here with 2 of my sons today. A really delicious Mothers Day lunch! I've eaten here several times before and although the food has been good the portions have left you feeling hungry. Not today thankfully! Starters of mussels, scallops and chicken liver parfait, mains of lemon sole and roast pork and puddings for the men where plentiful,... More

My partner and I went just before valentines night, have to say the service was excellent and all staff were polite and attentive. However the food was very overpriced for what it was, there was nothing spectacular about the meal and the wine list needs some work. £90 for two ...... will not be back in a hurry.

First of all from start to finish we had excellent service. I'm a vegetarian and I think the menu tried to offer different veggie options (as well as the usual risotto) but they had a lot of sauerkraut and other fermented veg included in the dishes which isn't to my taste but this is just a personal taste. One sounded... More

We were looking for somewhere to take out daughter out for a nice meal while visiting her at university and choose here as it has good write ups and looks the part. It was quite good, and the food was perfectly alright but the place flatters to deceive a little. The decor is nice and trendy and there is all... More
