Had dinner here with our daughter and son in law the evening prior to a family gathering to celebrate our forthcoming 50th Wedding Anniversary. The food was exceptional as was the service and ambience. Staff were very attentive without being obtrusive.

Had dinner here on our first night as part of a 2 night Travelzoo stay at the Balmer Lawn Hotel. Really nice ambience in the restaurant with very attentive waiting staff. Food was delicious and presented well. For main course we ordered monkfish which was advertised as being served with potatoes and samphire, so we didn't order any side dishes.... More

Like many other diners I chose the pork belly and was not disappointed. A surprise bonus was the new serving slates the meal came on, a lovely presentation. Prior to the pork I had soup which arrived piping hot in its new style modern black bowls. I love a restaurant that has a great signature dish and will definitely be... More

Great location, friendly service, but the food . . . You must try the Pork Belly - yum eee, and don't miss out on the best raspberry soufflé on planet earth! Overall a great meal, but service could be more slick, and prices are a tad high!

Dear Bobtdiver Thank you very much for this great review of some of our dishes, I must admit that the “pork belly” is one of my favourites too. No excuses for that less than slick service, our Restaurant Manager (Randy) is currently on a well-earned break but we should still be able to maintain his exacting standards in his absence....
