Warm welcome, unpretentious. Clear menu and good selection with plenty of variety. Interesting plates and a good selection of wines. Three courses with drinks worked out at a little over £100 for two.

Met in the bar with friends for pre-dinner drinks. Staff greeted us warmly on arrival and we deliberated with exciting menu. Excellent variety on menu from traditional to novel. Portion size was perfect and presentation lovely. Time between courses was just right too. Nice relaxed lighting and suitably informal atmosphere. Our first time and we hope to return any time...

Chicken liver parfait seemed to have been prepared to the same recipe as Jim's (yum yum), and the ham and pea soup was silky and lovely. The mains... More

Went by the reviews on Trip Advisor and booked here whilst on an overnight stay in Stamford. We were not disappointed! The food was absolutely lovely! We opted for the set menu which was £19.50 for three courses and it was amazing. All the fishes coming out of the kitchen looked inviting. The service was really good. Everybody was so... More

We went for an evening meal, great varied meal with a mx of meat and fish options. The service was excellent and just a wonderful evening. The only disappointing thing was that we hadnt found the restaurant sooner!
