We arrived around 20 minutes before our reservation time. We were promptly and courteously greeted on arrival and were asked if we would like to go straight to our table or to have a drink beforehand. Having chosen to have a drink, we were shown to a lovely outdoor seating area and our drinks order was quickly taken and delivered.... More

The only reason I'm giving this restaurant five stars is that I can't give it more. The quietly sophisticated ambience with the decor, lighting and music is spot-on.The staff are excellent - discretely attentive and very professional but with a totally appropriate air of friendliness. And the food! Perfection just about covers it. Every time we go, it is astoundingly... More

Food excellent. Certainly a place for a special occasion.Plenty of room between tables. No loud music enabling diners to converse without shouting. Staff are professional and welcoming without being invasive. My husband and I went for a meal with friends we all chose different meals which were served together and each one cooked to perfection. If you're a foodie, as... More

We celebrated our 37th Wedding Anniversary with a lovely lunch on 22nd July. Have been once before and that was excellent too, The set lunch menu had plenty of choice and the fish courses were first class. There is outside seating, the service was very good and we had a very relaxing and pleasant couple of hours.

This restaurant is vastly overpriced for fairly mediocre food. The dishes are poorly planned with unbalanced flavours. My lamb was a cheap cut which was incorrectly cooked and therefore very sinewy and near impossible to cut. The portions are quite mean. The service is friendly, but staff are not properly trained. The room is poorly designed - very noisy due... More
