We went for the vegetarian tasting menu and enjoyed all the different flavours. I can understand the review that said the courses look 'samey' but it's difficult to present things so beautifully without a bit of that creeping in. The staff are very friendly and we loved the environment. My only slightly negative comment is the time taken between courses.... More

Got taken here for a birthday treat and loved it! Went for the 6 course tasting menu and particular highlights were duck pate muesli and flower petals in cold horseradish and cucumber soup! The only disappointment for me was that what looked like an amazing desert was in my opinion ruined my adding popping candy. I'm sure for lots of... More

We booked over six weeks beforehand to ensure a table on our actual Golden Wedding Anniversary - just the two of us, because we were having a large party for family and friends the next afternoon. We treated ourselves to the 8 Course Taster Menu, which is worth listing: Gazpacho; Duck Profiterole; Veal & Pulled Pork Brioche Burger; Lemon Sole... More

Short version – excellent restaurant. Very good contemporary food, charming service and a great location. Do not hesitate to visit, book early if you want a table on a Friday or Saturday, be aware that they do taster menus so maybe not for picky eaters. This is a small restaurant, only 5 tables if I recall correctly. They could probably... More

Have visited this restaurant twice recently, the first time we had the 6 course taster menu which was good - so were happy to return on an 8 course taster menu night with friends. I have to say, even this time, some things were exceedingly tasty and interesting, however the vegetarian courses in particular were very 'samey'. I suspect that... More

As a small family run restaurant we put our heart and soul into everything we so, so it is extremely disappointing to read a review of this nature. It is interesting that the things you are negative about are the very things that our guest come back to us time and again for; the varied innovative menus and the warm... More

Food and service were both fantastic. Came for the Thursday night 6 course tasting menu, and each course was superb. Wasn't sure of a few when looking at the menu, but they all worked really well. Would definitely recommend!

We booked at late notice for a birthday (88th) lunch for my father. The restaurant wasn't going to open on the day but said they would when I asked. We had a four course taster menu which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The service, Andy's wife I presume, was excellent attentive but not overly so. Just as good as last time... More

Superb food, and fabulous service. We had the eight course taster menu which had some great flavour combinations. I don't like fish, which was one of the courses, and the restaurant were more than happy to offer an alternative, which was lovely. Thank you!

Had a really great experience here with the 8 course taster menu. Every course was a delight, cooked perfectly with some really interesting flavours. There was real anticipation for the next course, wondering if it would be as good as the previous, and it never failed to deliver. The only disappointment being when we had ran out of courses and...
