We were allowed, infact encourage, to go into the kitchen to see the food being prepared and I can honestly say that every dish going out looked... More

The surroundings are lovely with well-spaced tables. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Where we sat, two of our party were not warm enough - radiator near us not on. The prices are at the higher end and food very well presented. Desserts lovely and generously portioned. However, some of the meals were too nouvelle cuisine in size as was the portion of... More

We have used this restaurant on several occasions and found it to be excellent every time. The menu changes regularly accompanied by an extensive wine list. All the staff are very welcoming especially Molly who always finds the time for a quick chat.

Great service, very friendly, polite and with a smile. Food is delicious, nice size portions, and lots of choice, only advice I would give is I love a soup in the winter and therefore would always like to have a soup option to start. Love the Amuse Bouche and Chocolate fudge treats to accompany the start and end of the... More

We were a large party from a large family, but we preordered all our food on their request. We waited over an hour and a half with 7 children absolutely starving and when the meal was served, it was an extremely minimal amount for £21 a roast. To the point I had to make us a supper a few hours... More
