The staff couldn't do enough to help us organise this special occasion and it was the same on the night. Terrific food too and the restaurant catered brilliantly for my diabetic dad and sister. The private function room was prefect. We had access to a stereo for connecting an iPhone, our own toilets and were waited on all night. Having... More

Not my first visit here but pleased that the food and service were up to their usual high standard. A table of 12 of us. Wonderful, friendly service. Excellent food well presented on hot plates. The starched linen was impeccable. A lovely meal, thank you.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit - the food was beautiful and the staff were polite and friendly. They didn't rush us at all like they do in some restaurants. It's expensive, but worth it. Would definitely visit again for a special occasion.

A spur of the moment decision was rounded off with three delicious courses. Food was excellent quality, fresh, tasty and good value for money. The staff were knowledgeable about all items on the menu, and we were made to feel very welcome. We would definitely go back, and also recommend to anyone else.

Car park over busy road - not ideal. Lovely decor. Helpful, pleasant staff. That's the best I can say. Salt beef looked and tasted like it was from a shop bought vacuum pack. Main was a bit Essex nouveau cuisine for me. Don't cater for gluten free. Waitress didn't know what it was! Glad I wasn't paying. Over priced frankly.... More

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
