Booked in here for an end to my valentine proposal day, and what an end it was. After reading the reviews it sounded perfect, and it was. Lovely attentive and informative staff, absolutely beautiful food, overflowing with different but complimentary flavours and all at a very reasonable price. Thank you so much for making our special day that little bit... More

Popped into this restaurant when staying in Tewkesbury for the weekend. Very surprised at how good it was, we were very impressed. To start we had 1) prawn cocktail; old school style with a modern twist, largest starter i have ever seen - it looked more like knickerbocker glory but with seafood and 2) scallops which were perfectly cooked.

We ate here last Saturday and are very impressed, very cold evening to be extremely warmly welcomed into this cute little restaurant and sat next to an open fire, the food was outstanding and we will certainly be eating here again very soon, you could choose from either an al a carte menu or set 2 or 3 course menus,...

My partner & I visited here on the 9th Feb 2015 , we'd heard how great the food was but didn't expect it to be exceptional ! Presentation , texture , taste all absolutely outstanding ! Service absolutely impeccable ... If you want London food at half the price you MUST visit this place !!!

We decided to visit My Great Grandfathers for my partners birthday with friends after looking at the menu in the window. The restaurant and staff were warm and inviting, the food from the warm breads, complimentary lobster bisque to our starters and main courses were excellent and portions good. We will definately visit again and recommend to others.

My wife booked us a table here for our 8th Wedding Anniversary. It was an early lunch so we were the first to enter the restaurant which is very nicely laid out and welcoming. The service was quick but we didn't feel at all rushed. The amuse bouche was pleasant surprise and tasted amazing along with the freshly baked bread.... More

The food was exceptionally unique and delicious. Going as a party of 6 there was something on the menu for everyone to enjoy! The atmosphere was extremely cosy, even had a real fire going to keep everyone warm. Service was excellent as we were given honest opinions about how generous the portions were so we didn't over order. Definitely would... More

Please note: I'm basing this on having been twice (already) and will be heading back! First visit: Made contact with the restaurant via their website. In no time at all, I had a response, apologising that they were not to be able to accomodate me at my preferred time, but offering an alternative. Their explanation that the chef works alone...

The food was delicious, worth every pennie. The service was exceptional. The décor was traditional and cosy, yet with a modern flare. Have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant. We were a party of six girls and we all enjoyed!
