Our first visit, we went with friends who were also eating here for the first time. We were a bit worried it would be pretentious, but it wasn't at all, it had a lovely atmosphere & the staff were friendly. We all ate off the a la carte menu & although the choice is then limited (3 choices for each... More

Visited Saturday for dinner - a warm smile & welcome , cosy sofas & a swiftly served cocktail got the evening off to a perfect start - with the exception of one dessert (out of 3.........) which was just not to my taste, the food could not be faulted. I have never had such intensely flavored cauliflower or Jerusalem artichokes... More

Went here with my boyfriend as a late Valentines meal, as it had been fully booked up for Valentines day itself. The restaurant itself is in a little square, very pleasant surroundings and only 5 minutes from where I live! Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted quickly by a lovely blonde lady. Initially we felt a little uncomfortable as... More

However we review a restaurant with an overall honest mark & hope that the criticism will help you to achieve the long awaited Michelin star. There was no happy warm greeting when... More

Visited last night and had the taster Menu with accompanying wines. The staff were knowledgeable about the courses and the wine. The atmosphere is intimate and relaxed. The food was unbelievably tasty, well thought out and presented perfectly.

This restaurant has always provided excellent food along with great service. I sure hope it gets its star soon as it would be fully justified. Keep up the good work and im sure you will be rewarded.
