Everything about this restaurant is stunning, start with atmosphere, décor, food and service. There is a lovely bar area witch is more like a lounge with an open fire. There is nice music played in the background. We went there just after they opened that day ( 6pm) and as it was quite cold we were sat next to the... More

I discovered this resturant by chance as my date is in to Thai food and I can highly recommend it. The resturant is out of this world, better than I am used to by far. Everything is beautifully laid out, plush carpeting, comfy and nice music. The service is excellent, prices are reasonable and the food is presented well and... More

I've been here quite a few times and have consistently had a wonderful time. I have always found the staff warm and accommodating, and are always on hand to recommend dishes if you can't make up your mind. The food is very well presented, and from what I have ordered recently and in the past has always tasted superb. I... More

We have been as a family on several occasions and the food is always good. A very varied menu and attentive staff make it it an enjoyable experience everytime. It can be a little lacking in athmosphere when empty. Good value too!

Extremely well presented and tasty. Food, Friday nights is piano night which added to the atmosphere. Food is a little pricey but well worth it for a treat. The Cockadoo mixed sharing platter starter is particularly recommended - a little taster of everything.
