Taher takes a real interest in your views of his cooking. Recommend the brill. He and his staff deserve a higher rating.

Husband and I visited on weekend away. Food was very good. My husband said his fillet steak was one of the best he had had. My fish was good but the veg rather soggy. Service was rather chaotic as they had a large party upstairs. Tables left uncleaned and staff obviously overstretched. I am afraid despite the good food and... More

Can not fault the service at this place, the waiters and waitresses were very helpful. However the food was not nice, especially for how much they charge. The starters were ok, just a standard dish, but the mains we had were not good. The belly pork is literally three small slices of the cheap Value belly pork you can buy... More

This iis a good restaurant with a good range of fresh produce well cooked. The prices are reasonable as is the service and ambiance. The fact that they have won awards locally is not surprising, but this is not a fine dining restaurant

We ate here on the 22nd of July and what a treat it was. Cosy and very busy for 7:30 on a Wednesday evening which is always a good sign! The person that served us did a wonderful job of explaining the food and specials which he clearly knew a lot about. The food itself was exceptional with the Moroccan... More

We have been many times to this restaurant and it has never let us down for quality,quantity, and deliciousness. Taher is an excellent chef which has always shown it's self in the wonderful food that he serves to his customers. His staff have always been most polite and friendly, which completes the experience of eating in this restaurant.

I've always been a fan of the dining room and rave about it to friends, but when I suggested to a friend that we have tapas one lunch time we were left very disapointed, the tapas menu has been shortened considerably so we ordered 5 of the 6 dishes then to be told that chef didn't have 2 of them,...
