Does not look anything from outside and it is very small inside, but super food, not loads of choice but I loved it, would go again, nice for couples wanting a romantic meal

My son took me for a surprise meal. We went early and had the early bird menu - equivelent to the main menu but much cheaper. The food was amazing. Beautifully prepared, cooked and presented. Excellent value for money. Recommended

Visited this restaurant with friends on their,& trip advisor, recommendation. It was ok. Not great. Not awful. My starter was mediocre, my beef was overcooked ( not medium, as requested), my dessert was sent back & service felt rushed. The restaurant is cramped, the music is inappropriate ( an 80's compilation) & the service satisfactory. I won't be returning.

We've eaten here a few times now and it's always great! The place is really cosy with a few tables dotted around. We could hear the bustle of the kitchen too which was exciting! Great food and a lovely front of house team. Will be returning again during the summer!

Came here on Friday for my birthday. The food was gorgeous, I had scallops, beef and xmas pudding. Yum yum yum. The place is a little expensive so only really for treats, but its a lovely little place, good quality with a very friendly waitress. We would definitely come again.

I haven't been for quite a while but when visiting I found the service, staff, general atmosphere and food excellent. I grew up in this area and remember this building and the history and it brings back child hood memories

A great experience altogether, the restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere and the owners give great attention to detail, are very knowledgeable around all aspects of the food and drink they offer, including sourcing and provenance. The level of service and the quality of food served has never been other than to an excellent standard and I would be happy to... More
