Mrs G organised for us to have lunch here last week. The place is superb. The decor is inviting, the staff are really friendly and flexible on time (we were 30 mins early) The food was _the best_ I've ever had, service was unobtrusive but instant, without making a song and dance about it the waiting staff were _always_ ready...

I booked this restaurant based on the reviews on Trip Advisor without realising it has a Michelin star - and am so glad I did. It had a relaxed atmosphere and the staff were lovely. My husband and I watch a lot of 'foodie' programmes as we both love cooking, so from the very start when we were given three... More

Went there for my husband's birthday (he'd always wanted try a tasting menu at a Michelin restaurant). There were 3 of us. We each thoroughly enjoyed what we had. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Staff were very professional, the wine specialist was amusingly enthusiastic, taking us around Europe! Atmosphere was peaceful. Restaurant and toilets were clean. Would definitely recommend... More

Me and my brother just had meal at Castle Terrace. It was beyond imagination, the surprise tasting and matched wine pavkagr did an exquisite duo. Joel explained every wine with all details. Service very skilled and knew exactly what they present on plate. Overall experience far beyond great!

We had a special 21st birthday meal here and all rated it very highly. The food is smart, beautifully presented and delicious. It has a more casual feel than most restaurants of this price and quality but service is top notch and very friendly

There are few reviews where me and my partner were left speechless, this is certainly one. Arrived for dinner on a Tuesday evening the restaurant full of anticipating customers. We opted for the Tasting menu with matching wines and what a decision we made. Everything was exquisite from perfectly balanced, seasoned food to the delicate matched wine. I highly recommend...

Although a touch pricey, a visit here is really something else! The tasting menu really blows your mind - every one of the courses introduces you to a different taste sensation. The quality of the ingredients and preparation are what sets this establishment apart. Went for my wife's birthday and the staff couldn't have been more attentive of helpful. Deserves... More

Had the tasting menu. Every item that came out was creative and delicious. The whole meal lasted 2 and a half hours but we hardly felt the time as the courses were well timed and spaced apart. Excellent service from the staff too.

I came to this restaurant a few months ago and gave it a thumbs up. The tasting menu and matching wines are wonderful to see and taste. Service excellent. This is a must!
