If everything else was to the same high standard as the service, then this restaurant would be outstanding. However, there are a number of things that detract somewhat from the dining experience, even though we did enjoy ourselves. First, the service, which was exemplary. Our waiter was highly attentive, and took great care to make completely sure that the food... More

Bought a voucher to visit for a champagne lunch to celebrate our anniversary. Lovely 3 course lunch especially the prawn starter. I had a real French coq au vin, hubby had pork in a mustard sauce. Interesting desserts too, all washed down with champers! The service was excellent, just the right speed to allow time between courses and not too... More

Found this restaurant very dark and hard to read the menu,I was not the only diners with my phone torch on that night. Food was ok but seemed very expensive for what you got. Staff were very helpful and keen to help. There are better places to eat for the kind of money they charge.

Having read some previous reviews about the restaurant we were unsure what to expect, however we were not disappointed. We dined on a Sunday evening and found that staff were very attentive but not overbearing. We chose steak and a burger which were really delicious. The meals were served in timely manner and the ambiance of the room added to... More

A bit pricey for our budget but lovely ambience. The food was good but catered for the festival audience.

The food is good but really expensive for what it is. The service is really awful and slow! I don't pretend to get back to this restaurant.

My friend and I treated ourselves to lunch here but it turned out to be not much of a treat . The first thing I spotted when I sat down was a big blob of red wine in my glass. We chose the set menu: 3 courses for just under £17 seemed not bad. Unfortunately pork belly was off the... More

A friend and I decided to go for lunch, having heard some fantastic reviews. We were greatly disappointed. The lunch menu didn't have much choice on it and the quality of food was terrible. The ham hough terrine tasted awful, was covered in oil and the presentation was slap-dash at best. The coq au vin was average, served with tasteless... More
