Once again an enjoyable evening and excellent fare at this restaurant.there is a very relaxed atmosphere about the place which after a busy week is most welcome. I had a tapas of crab soup which was divine and for me the perfect size prior to my main course of steak, which was cooked to perfection. My husband ordered from the specials board the steamed prawns, scallops and mussels which were fabulous, followed by a perfect fish curry. For dessert we both enjoyed the taste of the chocolate trifle but it does need some attention on the presentation. The heavy chunky glass it's served in is just not right, neither is the dessert spoon given to eat it with. A lighter stemmed glass would be better with a long handled smaller spoon. A good dessert should be a celebration to close a fab meal, and have a bit of the old wow factor about how it looks.
One final point, our table was around the corner out of the way of the service area. Whilst in the main this is a good thing, towards the end of the evening, and we have felt this on previous visits, you can feel a bit ignored. The staff tend to focus on laying up the tables for the next days service forgetting that the current one isn't yet over! A small point but one which needs attention. Overall though, well worth a visit and we will return.
