We arrived having booked a babysitter, got dressed up , excited about going out for the first time in along while . We opened... More

I have been provoked to write this review based on the previous nonsense. We are regulars of this place and know the owners well and for a reviewer to verbally abuse anyone is unforgivable! we have dined in many restaurants all over Europe and find this to be very good value for money, food has clear intentions, very bold and...

Four of us visited on a Saturday lunchtime and had a lovely time - staff were attentive and friendly and one of our party who is wheat intolerant was well looked after with special appetizers and bread just for her. The set menu offered excellent value - my wood pigeon main was one of the best prepared and presented pieces... More

The food was good but a quality restaurant should cater for all its customers needs .Aperitif choice ,poor ,they had no wine buckets and for me the wine temperature of choice will rise between first and last glass . How does one keep the wine at the preferred temperature . With surly scowls they did not perform , the place... More

Had a very disappointing meal here but thought that it must be me as they have so many awards so went back with my father in law to try again. Should have trusted my first impressions - another disappointment. No atmosphere at night with bright strip lights, arrogant service in the extreme. Asked for some grapes or celery to go... More

We were turned away at the door when we mentioned that one of our party was a vegetarian, even though we'd booked 2 months in advance. You'd hope that a restaurant who rather pretentiously called themselves the 'wild mushroom' would be able to cater for non-meat eaters "we are not a vegetarian restaurant" the arrogant cook told me. Apparently you... More

Visited on Friday, simply knocked out by everything. Food, drink, service, cutlery, everything. The food combinations were superb and alive with flavours. The care and skill in every plate and bowl was exemplary. I dont know what else to say. Just go here and enjoy. Brilliant.

After a warm welcome we were taken straight through to a corner table. Carpet on the floor and no background music ("muzak"?) does mean that dining room is quite quiet, but rather that than having to shout to be heard. Delicious amuse bouches and breads (I chose a bacon and shallot brioche which was light and most enjoyable) were followed... More

Restaurant bar/reception area is a bit odd and poorly laid out. Dinning room is in a traditional style and filled with modern art. Meal started with three tasty canopies followed by the arrival of excellent freshly baked bread including a wheat free version for one of our party. Chose the three course lunch from the a la carte. Particularly liked... More
