Excellent food, really unique menu, problem is getting there on the A66 but once you can manage to get there it's worth it, service wasn't very good waiters had no emotions, but the food made up for it.

Great food in a buzzing atmosphere. The staff were, as ever, helpful and friendly. The restaurant is always full, speaks for itself.

We walked into an empty restaurant we were made to sit for 5 minutes while our table was made ready, even though it was already set. I guess this is their idea of punishment for not booking. I used to eat here often but one time they told me they were fully booked but not 1 table was taken. The... More

Visited with friends last night. Good atmosphere and food presentation was lovely, but I expected so much more from such a highly rated restaurant. Bland to say the least, and won't be returning I'm sad to say.
