A quick "bar food" snack with friends... Disappointed... The bar food was difficult to eat as you needed knives and forks to eat - the roasted vegetables was presented as 2 big chicks of broccoli- how do you share that? Then the pumpkin snack with aioli was a huge roasted piece of pumpkin... Weird menu for bar food

Visiting our son, who chose this restaurant as he believed it to be one of the best in the area and was owned by a renowned chef. Unfortunately we were very disappointed with our meal. My husband's meal was pretty bland, my son's definitely didn't have a lot of taste and mine was very tough to eat and not very... More

Have dined here quite a few times and have never had a bad meal. Degustion or just a couple of courses it's always first rate. And not just the pork or the heavy hitters they have a deft and skillful hand with intricate and sofisticated entres and amazing desserts. Great wine list too. Travel down from newcastle any chance we... More

I had high expectations for this place as I have always wanted to try this place out. Service is good and the food was not really a wow factor. One of the food which we ordered was bone marrow with crab, a mixture that came in a bone served on little black pebbles on a plate. As the lights in... More

We hada table of 10 and therefore had to have a set menu. Food was nice but presentation was poor. Out of three entrees, two had pork crackling as the garnish. Service was excellent

We were a table for 10 and were put in the private room upstairs. Just great. We were on a big square table so conversation was lively. Often with a big group you end up on a long table and its hard to speak to everyone at your table. The big square table was terrific. Our waiter was Ollie and... More

This was an amazing meal, generous servings, fantastic waitress and lovely room! Loved having a drink in the bar which was an old haunt in the 90's. This is the first time I have enjoyed eel which was served with duck breast and beetroot just yummy!
