We have dined here many times over the years and it is one of few restaurants that we can always guarantee an outstanding meal. The food here is exquisite. Every element on the plate is carefully thought out and constructed to delight the customer. The chef is a master of his trade and understands the complexities of what he is... More

Having wanted to visit this restaurant for some time, we booked for a 'pre' valentines day meal. The food was perfect, absolutely delicious but the restaurant lacked an atmosphere that made you feel ' I must go there again'. The staff were polite and attentive but there was a warmth missing for me. the drinks I found very expensive. Overall... More

A delightful, leisurely, delicious lunch in the charming room with comfy chairs and very good service. Each dish conceived & executed with thought for the fine ingredients (pigeon breast, asparagus, quinoa made interesting with peas, duck egg yolk, tasty & tender beef steak, strawberries with their juice), elegantly presented, and chef even grows his own mini herbs in the kitchen!...

Want wonderful high quality food with a innovative flair? Then this is the place for you. Its food is beautifully cooked and the flavor on the plate compliment each other meaning you taste the meat or veg for the first time. It is extremely reasonably price for the quality you get and a wonderfully extensive and surprisingly good wine list.... More

Reading the reviews you get the general idea that this place is pretty darn good at what they do so I won't bother to repeat whats been said before. Just really wanted to advise people that like rice pudding to have the risotto if its still on the dessert menu. If I was to somehow end up on death row... More

Had a wonderful meal here. We went for the tasting menu, with matching wines. Loved the pork crackling butter, wow. Great wines, food and service. Very intimate setting, great for a couples night out.

We were a family of 4, plus a 7-month old baby in a high chair, celebrating my son-in-law's 40th birthday with a special lunch. Everything was as good as we could possibly have hoped. The service was well paced and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was just what we wanted - small and intimate but informal... More
