For a special occasion this restaurant can't be faulted. The food and service is flawless, and the room looks amazing.
We went on a saturday night and got the 6 course tasting menu rather than the 10 course. At £60 a head rather than £100, I still think it represents great value - there were a couple of extra courses thrown in which were very welcome, and the whole experience took over 3/4 hours - exactly what we were looking forgiven the cost and occasion.
If I had to criticise anything I'd say the toilets - the restaurant doesn't seem to have it's own dedicated ones so you have to use the Midland's lobby toilets - these are pretty rubbish to be honest. It's almost like the second you step in to the restaurant the experience is amazing, the second you come out to go the toilet you are world's away.
