We had booked as a table of 8 for a birthday celebration.
The restaurant itself is rather cosy, located in the basement of a large victorian property.
Our greeting was friendly and professional, being shown to our table.
As an amuse bouche, we were given smoked salmon on rye bread which was delicious.
My starter was the crab ravioli which was out of this world- a beautifully cooked, plumb ravioli pillow stuffed with creamy Newhaven crab meat and served with a gorgeous broth.
For main course I chose the beef which was nice but the portion was on the small side - but, what I did have was expertly cooked and presented beautifully.
We were also offered various warm rolls and butter.
None of us ordered desserts but we did enjoy some beautiful wine and cocktails. The bill came to around £600.00. We would return
