We ate here last week and it was absolutely top class. The liver pate was delicious as a starter don't overlook it! The service was excellent and the relaxed atmosphere was most enjoyable. Definitely one of the best restaurants I've eaten in.

Visited this restaurant as we were staying in the area and had heard from friends how good it was and it didn't disappoint! The food was excellent! Both the steak and the scampi were a big hit! The service was first class, nothing too much bother and such a welcome and we couldn't fault it at all! Just wish we... More

I live nearby so eat here in the wine bar regularly. It's always consistently excellent in every way. Great service, value and amazing food with an extensive wine and beer menu. The lambs kidneys starter is to die for !! Like any great restaurant, it's always busy so be sure to book ahead or risk disappoinment. Love this place !!!
