Try the steak grilled on a lava stone

Met friends here at the Italian restaurant owned by former footballer Rio Ferdinand. Great food and a really interesting interior.

You must go here on a Saturday/Sunday for lunch and choose from their great value offer menu. The food is so amazing, being female had to try other half's starter and main as when his comes I always feel I should have chose what he chose. On this menu you can get a bottle of house wine for under £10... More

A group of 4 ate for a birthday meal. 3 courses and drinks came to £271 which is a little steep for Italian food which is basically pasta, pizza and salads. The food was very tasty and the staff very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is in a listed building and is very nice inside. The only little niggle is... More

We arrived ten minutes earlier than our 8pm reservation and were told our table would be ready shortly. We were directed to the bar where we enjoyed two fabulous cocktails including the best Porn Star Martini I have ever tasted. Unfortunately, our table never materialised and at 8.40pm my partner had to go and enquire how much longer it would... More

Menu is quute extensive but was a little on the pricey side. Very good experuence overall. The only thing that let it down (slightly) was the maitre de, she was yawning towards the end of the...

Drink orders were taken as soon as we were seated, and arrived quickly. We ordered starters and mains, the starters arrived very quickly. Great food and proffesional service with good knowledge of wine. Only fault was that one starter and one main were wrong, however the mistakes were quickly corrected but Will definitely return.

Visited with the girls on a night out. The food didn't blow me away. Opinion was split. Have to say it must be a one off for me and I will go back and try it again.

Pricey but good service. Very good surroundings and the food is excellent with a range of food you can't always get in other similar restaurants. A very good atmosphere is created, although sitting close to the kitchen exit isn't ideal. Great for special occasions.
