i was lucky enough to be taken for lunch by my daughter. I arrived early and queued patiently for several customers in front of me to check in at the front desk. I was pointed to the barwher a small (175cl) glass of Malbec was £7. For starters, I had mushroom risotto with overcooked rice and slimy (tinned?) mushrooms. The... More

This restaurant has lovely food, amazing atmosphere but the service is dreadful, it lets it down so much, also there was no toilet paper! Would I go back? ...no the service was so bad that it's not worth the money!

I've eaten here a lot over the last few years and I have to say it was fabulous when it first opened but seems to have gone downhill over the last year; either they've become complacent or there is something up with the manager/ chef. The service is generally slow; on our last visit we had to ask three times... More

Group of 9 for lunch on boxing day. Had a bit of a problem over the prior month with TWBG group deciding if their Xmas lunch finished on 10th December! We were the only table having that menu and was apprehensive as to whether Turkey, crackers etc was left over from boxing day. However, we were treated superbly by the... More

Visited as a group and had a fantastic night. The food was excellent and all the sides were beautiful. We visited on a weekday so the place wasnt packed and service was good. The wine list was lovely and menu selection was almost tok good, couldnt decided what we wanted! Will be going again no doubt.

I used to be a big fan, and tried to go as often as possible to the bar and grill - however over the past year it has unfortunately gone down hill. After introducing a new menu in 2013, the food was excellent, however the menu has shrunk and the service has deteriorated. On my last visit, the waitress forgot... More

This was the best place for miles around when it first opened. For service it was unrivalled. My friends and I practically lived there but terrible management changes have had an awful impact and now we hardly ever go in. It's a shame that it's gone down hill so much in the last couple of years and it only seems... More

I've been a bit disappointed the last couple of times I've been here, due to poor service, but as it used to be my favourite restaurant in town I thought I'd give it one more chance. We'd booked a table for 3 at 8.30, but were told when we arrived that the table wasn't ready (no apology) and to have... More

I like everything about this place and its right next door to our business rtwskin. The perfect venue for entertaining visiting doctors or business contacts. We had our third Christmas party here this year and it was great, enjoyed by all. Well done to all, the staff are super.
