Decor, people, ambience, atmosphere, wine list, presentation, staff attitude.... All fantastic. But it builds you up to expect perfection, and the food just seems like a slightly posher wagamamas.

Great food. Amazing sushi, top class steaks and a great setting. The staff are wonderful and the drinks choice / wine list is extensive. It is not cheap here but worth every penny

After booking for the Monday, then having to change it to Tuesday due to babysitter, nothing was a problem! Great service, good food and a really relaxed place to be!! We were never rushed and felt like it was a really relaxed evening.

Has a fantastic lunch here on Monday. It was surprisingly quiet but you are still in lovely surroundings so didn't miss any thing in terms of atmosphere. I have been waiting a long time to come here, finally I have and was not disappointed. Please could you open in Alderley Edge!! Every thing was great need I say more?
