It's slightly on the pricey side, but the food lives up to it though none of it blew me away. Would... read more

Our table opted for the tasting menu which had a wide variety of dishes, ranging from scallops which were presented beautifully, to suckling pig (best i've ever had) to grilled halibut. Well-priced, friendly service and great atmosphere. I will be back very soon!! Would highly recommend!

The restaurant is beautifully appointed - modern & airy. The service is a touch formal but super professional and the waiting staff are all well drilled. It works smoothly. Had the pre theatre menu which is 2 courses for £19 or 3 for £22. The food was v good tho not exceptional. It was all well executed.
