Having read some ogf the reviews of this restaurant I wonder if we turned up at the right one. Admittedly there is virtually no room to sit and relax with a drink before or after the meal. We sat at the bar for 15 minutes and had a pleasant drink before going to our table. We had booked for 7pm on a Tuesday and were very aware of the differing sitting tmes and that we had the table until 9pm. No problem. We found the staff refreshingly freindly, but not overly so. Our order was taken, with all dishes explained in detail. I had a starter of smoked haddock omlette which was quite delicious. My wife passed on the starter but had the duck as a main and said it was very good. My dish of Lemon Sole was superb and exactly as explained. Both our sweets were excellent. The wine was not particularly expensive when compared with similar restaurants. In fact all in all a lovely evening, rounded off with a trip to the kitchen to meet Tom Kerridge.
Thanks to all the staff for making the experience so enjoyable.
