We thought the food was innovative and tasty with numerous and varied options, and the space outdoors was the right place to sit.

The restaurant has a very varied menu, with good food. There seem to be enough options to please vegetarians, carnivores, pescaterians... The terrasse is absolutely lovely for when its warm, and if its too cold, you can sit inside by the fireplace. Helpful and friendly service.

I had eaten a rather heavy lunch so decided to tuck into their special pie of the day which was "strawberry and rhubarb pie served hot with vanilla ice cream". It was quite a generous serving which of coz i appreciated. The pastry was... More

I had been trying to get here for a while. It was a very nice venue for our party of four. We sat outside and it was very pleasant. The menu had numerous choices that I would like to try. I had the smoked sailfish which was served on a chive crepe with a lemon & mustard dressing as my... More

Nice food and they do a great Ton Collins gin. Really relaxed atmosphere and enjoyed watching the monkeys frolicking around in the garden trees.

The food seems to be on a slide. The service is still good and so is the ambience. Have stopped going there. But was quite crowded the last time we were there would recommend a reservation on a weekend.
