Food was good , although for the prices portion were quite small . Glad we had a voucher at least we felt OK about the price we ended up paying. If we had had to pay the full price we would not have found it value for the money. Atmosphere was embarrassingly quiet, any conversations could be overheard. Any more... More

Having read the most recent reviews of this establishment I was expecting something a little out of the ordinary however left a tad disappointed. My findings are on a similar line to the review dated 18th June and feel there may be elements of "Emperors Clothing" on the pretence of fine dining. The lone waitress was friendly and hardworking but... More

Very welcoming staff. Excellent food, lots of little extras in-between the meals which added to the experience. Felt very spoilt. Had a Travel Zoo offer for £25 for 2 mains and 2 glasses of bubbly. Also had an amazing dessert and coffee with petit 4. Wish we lived closer to visit again!

What a fabulous meal we had here! Even though we had used a deal of 2 main courses for the price of 1 off the a la carte menu, I would willingly pay the full price next time. The welcome drink with complimentary olives and nuts served in a small, cosy and really comfortable lounge started the evening well. Then... More

Dinner on 2nd July 2014. A husband and wife team; so very hands on. Simon King cooks, Kate King meets, greets and attends tables. All our courses were beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. The scallops starter and beef main course were both a little bland for my taste, but the starter of "ethically produced" foie gras was superb, as was... More

My daughter bought me a voucher for Fathers Day via Groupon. We decided to push the boat out and try the Tasting Menu @ £55 per head. When we arrived, we were offered some olives and cashew nuts and sat in the small side room. The owner's wife said she didn't know what would be on the Tasting Menu, and... More

I returned to see how this was going on, as on our last meal there, there was only us as diners. Tonight they had 3 covers only, so people do not know what they are missing. Ate using a Living Social voucher, so value was better than ever. Every part of the meal hit the right spot, and I just... More
