If you plan to come here, go for the tasting menu - it was absolutely delicious! I can't fault anything about each of the dishes, wine pairings or the service (was which attentive) and enjoyed meeting the chef once we had finished. He give me a great tip on cooking pork belly!

I celebrated my birthday here a few weeks ago over Bottomless Prosecco Brunch. The set menu was amazing and no one faulted any aspect of the food. Most of us went for 3 courses. We were in the private dining room which was great. Marco and all the staff were amazing. No shortage of prosecco either ;) Thank you to... More

We came here last week. We ordered steam loin of cod and roasted halibut. Both were very nice. The portions were massive and the prices were reasonable. I would describe the food as great. Secondly, the staffs were amazing, lovely and friendly . I would recommend and would come again.

Attended a friends birthday lunch in the private dining room on Saturday 21st March. Excellent service throughout. Highly trained waiting staff. Kudos to Marco, our main waiter. Thanks to the management for looking after us. Tasty food. Decent portions. Bottomless prosecco for 15 pounds!! it would be rude not to!

A small family outing to this well-run restaurant. We were tempted by the "tasting menu" and found little to complain about the fare served - if the portions were the same as a-la-carte I would have left the restaurant hungry - but as it was no problems. The wines accompanying the food were well chosen and the Spanish Verdejo delicious... More

The restaurant itself is bright and spacious and if you're lucky enough to sit close enough to the kitchen it's quite fun watching the chefs at work. The restaurant has a good wine list and we were looking forward to the "mother's day" lunch. However, the service in between courses were rather slow and to have extra supplement prices on... More
