“Excellent meal !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Excellent meal after my sons graduation .We visited midweek early afternoon ,the place was empty but later more people arrived .We enjoyed the steak ,gammon ,lamb shank .My daughter is lactose intolerant ,so her safe bet was the 'Sauteed Portobello Mushroom -
With garlic & herbs. Served on toasted brioche' and 'Aberdeen Angus Burger -
Aberdeen Angus steak mince served with chips, onion rings and our honey
bourbon ketchup '..only to find the mushrooms were far too creamy and large slice of cheese was included in the burger... although it didn't state this on the menu . Sadly this made her very uncomfortable , even though she removed the cheese ! So for this reason I marked the experience down .

“Beautiful food and fab service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Popped in on a weekday lunch thinking it had the most interesting menu on the complex. Well worth doing! The portions were generous, starting with a Camembert platter with all different breads, followed by salmon and spicy tomato/ stuffed chicken breast. We both loved it and will be going back. Service was superb, really friendly and attentive. They were putting up Christmas decs when we arrived, but they stopped and moved all their ladders and equipment so as not to let down the atmosphere, which was considerate and kind. Don't be reluctant to go in if it's empty, the food and service was still top notch; even the music was cool. Back soon, thank you!

“Good food, poor ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We ate here early evening, and the food that was produced was well cooked and well presented. Wine prices were good, as were cocktails. Slightly disconcerted to see the menu said it was the Springtime menu - do they not change this more frequently?
Noise in the place was bearable to begin with, but as it filled up (Friday night, with a function taking place) it got extremely noisy and crowded, and we were suddenly marooned on a table away from the bar and the service disappeared.

“Mouthwateringly Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The pan fried duck breast is incredible. Mouthwateringly delicious and and such a large portion, crispy skin and juicy meat cooked to perfection. Served with a beautifully cooked fondant potato. The only reason they do not get five stars is that vegetables are not included in the meal.

Very much looking forward to returning.
