Superb drink options and always good to see a choice of carafes as there were only 2 of us. Food was amazing and a... More

We've eaten in many, many quality restaurants and this place is superb! The whole dining experience is well worth the money. We chose the 6 course tasting menu... More

It has been a few years since we ate at this restaurant. We were impressed then - having been introduced to sous vide rump steak. Today they excelled again. For £25 per head we were rewarded with an excellent lunch - canapes, home made bread/ dripping, the best olives we have ever eaten, starter main and dessert - all portions... More
