“very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2010

the food was very good. the price was what i would expect.
atmosphere/ambiance was excellent.
i liked the fact you are given a jug of water without asking, also given bread ( not sure whether you are charged for this though, hopefuuly not as it is a good gesture ).

the food is of a french influence so be clear as to how you want your meat cooked.
i had steak well done which was medum rare to me. this does not take anything away from how nice the meal was, i should have realised and said cremate the meat and make the chef cry.

i would reccomend this restaurant.

“Good food great early bird menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2009

I have been to this restaurant three times as I live locally,it offers a good selection of seasonal produce,the intimate dining room makes you feel more at home than a restaurant it's brilliant.the main menu is expensive as is the wine but the standard of food is superb.
I personally think the Early Bird menu is brilliant value and the same care and detail is evident.Overall a lovley place to eat and the atmosphere is so relaxed and in pretencious for an upmarket eatery.
