We treated some friends to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. Recent reviews are good although we had had a disappointment here some years ago, we did not regret our decision. It was out of the ordinary, with lovely canapes before the meal which seemed as much about texture as taste , the starters and main courses were all lovely and whilst we certainly ate sufficient (and more!) There was no outfacing with huge servings of anything.
All food lovers, we left 4 clean plates ! 2 opted for dessert and 1 for cheese and biscuits,I abstained! But both sweets and the cheese plate got the seal of approval too. The only criticism from me is that there is a £4 a head charge for coffee and chocolate craque....I eat the chocolate but do not like a coffee so seems a bit steep.
Quite quiet for our visit, a horrid wet Friday night in March . Would certainly consider again for another special occasion, and recommend to anyone seeking a special meal more to remember than your usual hotel dining room .
