most enjoyable food

went with another couple. we all found the menu to be rather off putting, as the description of the food did not match well with the food that arrived. in fact, all four of us were hunting the menu to find things we could eat, as chili and fennel (neither of which any of us were fond of), seemed... read more

We would not usually choose a seafood restaurant but we found food that was very tasty and we were very happy with out choice. I had the king prawn and clam chowder so tasty and we shared a pannacotta that had homemade honey comb yum!

5 course taster menu was excellent complimented with a comprehensive wine list. A small intimate setting.

They're not far off getting their first Michelin star. Each course was a gastronomic journey accompanied by a wine that complimented each dish as it should. Great thought has gone into the wine selection and as a £20 supplement was worth the addition to a beautiful meal. And at the end, we didn't feel as though we'd eaten too much;... More

The taster menu ( we requested no meat) was beautifully cooked and presented. It was served a a suitable speed by professional and friendly staff. Taster wines with the meal seemed to be eminently suitable.

Very good experience. The starters should be bigger but that's a small niggle. But the quality and attention to detail was very good.

We ate here as part of a Travelzoo offer which included a 5 course taster meal. I am a fussy eater and not good at trying different foods. This taster menu changed my opinion. We had artichoke velouté , really tasty, beetroot different ways, again so nice, then the one I was dreading, sea bream on a pasta, I have... More

We've eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the food. Our previous experiences have always had lots of wow moments and fantastic taste explosions that have have had us discussing the food. Unfortunately we didn't get this at all during our meal recently, it was a catalog of errors and tasteless food that looked stunning but had no flavor.... More

We had a five course taster menu through Amazon Local. Restaurant was full on a Thursday night which shows it's popularity. All courses were high quality and the staff were professional and friendly. As with most taster menus the portions are not huge but more than enough as they tend to be quite rich. Particularly enjoyed bream with curried orzo.... More
