Although we have been here before we had never stayed over. So we decided to stay for our wedding anniversary. For the price we paid the room was very dated and average and quite disappointing. After our event @ the hotel we had room service the sandwiches were quite dry like they had been sitting on the side. The breakfast... More

we had private dining for 13 people and nothing was too much trouble. The food was beautifully presented, perfectly served and the whole ambiance of the evening was excellent. the chef came to see us at the end of the meal and we had nothing but praise. Even the floral decorations on the table were superb.

Had Sunday lunch here recently. Scallops, Roast Beef, desserts all excellent, especially the beef and Yorkshire pudding. Some of the vegetables were undercooked. Service generally good, but a couple more smiles would have been appreciated. Seemed to be a slight lack of co-ordination between the staff. Some tables were offered condiments (mustard, horseradish, etc.), others were not. Amazing number of... More

We came for dinner between Christmas and New Year. We opted for the set seven course winter tasting menu with matching discovery wines. The menu is actually pleasingly flexible with the option of choosing from around 20 dishes to make up your own menu. An alternative wine flight of Calafornian versus French wines is also available. The food was very... More

We had the tasting menu with the matching wine flight and it was impressive to say the least. Chef Daniel Galmiche visited our table at the end of the meal to check everything was OK, and I was pleased to tell him the smoked oxtail was probably one of the best meals I've ever had. Brilliant elegant and beautiful, I... More

Came here on a corporate jolly and was concerned when I saw the restaurant was French as they are notoriously bad for veggies. I was surprised and delighted by the meal - it felt as if as much effort had gone into my meal as the meal enjoyed by the meat eaters (which is not always my impression!). In fact... More

We were treated to a fabulous evening, four courses of exceptional food matched perfectly with wine choices from the sommelier. We were looked after all evening by the very charming Dmitrij. The evening was completed with a visit to our table from Daniel Galmiche, celebrity chef. I can't wait for a return visit.
