I booked a table at 6 for our wedding anniversary. We were given what I thought was the best table in the restaurant, nice and cosy in a corner with a stand for champagne at the ready. The food was excellent, each course having one or two absolutely stand-out flavours, including the amuse bouche, an awesome mushroom cappuccino, and the 'pre-desert'.
I started with the scallops, which were amazing, and my husband really enjoyed his duck. We both opted for the lamb. They asked if it was okay that it was cooked pink, which was fine by us. It was indeed very pink but still full of flavour, and there was also a ball of slow cooked lamb which we both agreed was the best thing on the plate. For desert I asked for the toffee souffle. The menu warned it took 20 minutes to cook and the waiter reiterated this. My husband ordered the rhubarb and raspberry. They arrived together, hot and fresh. My souffle was a thing of joy, perfectly matched by the bitter chocolate icecream. My husband's plate was full of interesting flavours and textures.
All in all it was a lovely evening. We were the only customers for a while because of our early booking, but the atmosphere didn't suffer for this. It was cosy and intimate with subtle music in the background. As more people arrived the atmosphere developed a pleasant buzz. The manager and waiting staff were friendly and pleasant. They were unobtrusive and yet very efficient. At no point did we feel in any way rushed.
I would certainly return for another special occasion.
