My family treated ourselves to the Taster Menu last week. It was amazing, every course was perfect, very inspired, beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. The food was all very innovative and unusual with great taste combinations. It was the nicest meal I've ever tasted. The service was both competent and friendly, the decor is beautiful and the atmosphere is lovely.... More

I visited as we were staying in the hotel for a wedding and thought the place looked very smart. Food was ok but service was terrible, Bar manager hadn't got a clue didn't seem bothered and wanted to charge me for a drink he poured again as the first one was not right. I emailed to give a chance to... More

We ate here for Mother's Day and were made to feel very special. The restaurant catered well for my daughter's peanut allergy. The food portions are quite small for some of the larger guests but the meal was enjoyed by all. We will be back again soon!

As a real foodie I was so impressed with my evening meal, although at first the portions seemed on the small side I was pleasantly satisfied by the end of my meal and felt full without feeling uncomfortable, as a nation we are used to over eating and I think the chef got the portions completely right. The quality of... More

There were 15 of us. Firstly, the place itself is very impressive. Lovely lounge area. The head waiter handed out menus and people started to make their choices. It soon became apparent that there were two different menus so after some time the staff brought us all the same menus. The beer was very flat and when asked to change... More

This is a good place for a sophisticated night out. It has great selection of beers both English and European. There's an extensive wine list. The food is excellent both in choice and quality. Inside is very comfortable, leather sofas, with a quite secluded snug decked out like an Edwardian library. Outside is a terrace overlooking countryside. Definitely a place... More

The food was excellent and well worth the money. All I can say is the service is very poor. Had to wait a while for our first drink then had to catch the waiter as he walked past to ask for the wine list. When our food was finished our plates never got collected and had to get up out... More
