We had a lovely meal with excellent service in tasteful surroundings . The menu was varied and different . The presentation made the food look appetising . Wine menu was affordable for all types of occasions and pockets . Will definitely recommend and hope to return soon.

We are here on holiday and our meal was fantastic. We asked the waitress if we could have half an hour between courses and she happily complied. Great food, great service, great resturant. Highly recomend a visit.

All 3 courses were delicious. I had tomato soup, pork belly and trifle. Like many places of this type portion sizes aren't the biggest, but because the quality is good you feel like you had quite enough to eat by the time you leave. Staff were attentive but not overly so. Recommended :-)

We had a lovely evening when we dined here last week. The atmosphere was great and the chefs and staff were extremely friendly and helpful (in particular, our waitress Michaela). I am gluten free and the chefs and staff went out of their way to accommodate my requirements. The food was fresh, tasty and well presented. Yes it's pricey, but... More

We came here just for dinner but ended up ordering starter, main and dessert because the menu sounded so delicious. And we weren't disappointed - our food was amazing. Good choice of wines. And the service was efficient and friendly. Would definitely recommend for a romantic night out and fine food.

Found this place thanks to Tripadvisor and loved it. We were able to get a table with less than 2 hours notice. The food was really, really, really good. Service was excellent and the staff were relaxed and friendly. So glad we went.
