This was food and service you would expect in serious fine dining. When ordering chateaubriand rare, there is always a tinge of anticipation, however, The food was superlative, each course, first to last, never failed to delight. Service was so friendly, patient. This place will go a long way up the ladder of fine dining. Can not Recommend this place... More

Couldn't fault this place if I tried. We came for lunch on a Saturday for my fathers birthday and we certainly weren't disappointed. We were the only guests there and I have the feeling they opened for us. Service was superb even a small bottle of prosecco given to my father as a birthday gift. The food was superb (have... More

Visited for our wedding anniversary while staying in Tewkesbury. Had the set price meal. The food and service were excellent with a good choice but drinks were a bit expensive. I would recommend to anyone wanting a special meal.

A must if visiting Tewkesbury. My only disappointment was that I never visited more than once. Food was a nice break from a lot of the pub food usually served in Tewkesbury.

This is a welcome break from the tasty, but often heavy pub food common in the UK. We were surprised to find this kind of fusion in the village of Tewkesbury, with typical meat and fish dishes having a Japanese touch. The portions are substantial, service is excellent, and the desserts are stellar. Serious eaters might turn to the set... More

The service was excellent, the amuse bouche and bread were excellent and the wine very good. Sadly from there it was all down hill. Limited choices, from the set menu (two courses for £25) there was only Lamb or Salmon. Neither of which I am that keen on. Both the starter and main course were served beautifully but lacked any...
