I have been here a few times and everytime the experience is phenomenal. The food is always freshly cooked and delicious. Service is very courteous and despite being a tiny bit pricey it really is worth it. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed, the decor is also immaculately done. Be sure to book early as the restaurant is quite small!

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The food in all three courses was excellent: very well presented and with interesting taste combinations. Service was friendly and the atmosphere of the restaurant relaxed and intimate. I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We'll certainly be going back.

Don't hesitate to try this little restaurant. Excellent atmosphere, tasty, well-presented food, friendly service. Good choices on set menu and reasonably priced. It's also one of the few that's open on Mondays. Matt is very welcoming and efficient and deserves to do well. Will definitely go again. It was very busy so make sure you book in advance.

We enjoyed a lovely meal, the service was very good and this really added to the experience. The food was creative and beautifully presented with lovely flavours. It was as good as Michelin starred restaurants! We also enjoyed wine recommended to us, which was stunning. Great little restaurant which deserves to do well.
