“Traumatic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

1-We asked for the wine list made our choice only to be told am sorry we run out.
2- We ordered the food and five minutes later we were told: am sorry, we run out of what you ordered could we order something else.
3- Five minutes later another foot soldier arrives with yet another apology this time advising that due to two large bookings we would now have to wait 30 minutes for the starter.
4- Forty minutes later two food platters arrive with yet another apology. Any half decent chef would have taken one and a half minutes to assemble this starter with products possibly purchased from a supermarket.
5- The main course arrives and frankly yet another disappointment.

6- We arrived at 8pm and left 26 am sorry later at 10.30 having lost the will to live.

Once upon a time going out for a meal was a pleasurable experience but I suppose now saying sorry every five minutes and not delivering is a la mode. Clearly they have made their money and don't care about their client. Absolutely awful attitude.

“More than made up for a slight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere, setting and food. We did have to wait for over an hour for our meal and then one came cold...after a polite complaint, the manager and main server wee more than helpful and gracious ensuring everything was fixed. The wait was due to a large function that night. Not the norm. The one cold meal was fixed quickly and given compliments of the restaurant. Really great. Would go again and would recommend it.

“what a pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

I met a friend here just because it seemed half-way, and it was ever so pleasant. Great food, excellent friendly service, really cannot fault it in any way. We will be back!

“Excellent Venue for a romantic meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Came here Valentines Day as we wanted a restaurant that did not have a fixed menu at extortionate prices and loved the place.

We have been passing this place about once a week and kept saying we must come here for dinner one night and eventually I booked as a surprise. The location is excellent and the staff very attentive. if not a little too much. we felt a bit rushed and as soon as we were finished the plates were immediately cleared and the next course was placed before us. That is the only criticism and I stress it was only minor as the food was superb!

Also i usually allow a lot more money than i actually spent for our meal as it was excellent food at reasonable prices.

Highly recommend and will definitely go again.

“Big Night Out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I went with a group of friends recently and views were mixed. My Morrocan Lamb was excellent as were the scallops I had as a starter. In fact all the meat eaters were satisfied but those that has fish all said the portions were too small and came with no veg. The waiting staff were friendly but didn't point out the need for extras.
The biggest complaints were about the chairs most of which were too high so legs were squashed under the table or so low you looked vertically challenged! Also the table was so close to the radiator we almost melted. Lovely menu though and generally good. As long as you can sit in the middle I'd reccomend it to anyone. (Don't ask for more gravy, the answers's no!)
