Really enjoyable evening. The food was lovely, the wine and service was great. The green bean salad was delicous, the vegetable tempura was beautiful. The puddings were absolutely amazing! Really lovely for a treat meal.

I visited here on Saturday night and have to say that this place has gone extremely down hill. Funnily enough I visited a couple of weeks ago with my family and the food was shocking, it was cold, it came out within 5-10 minutes and...More

We have been coming here for years, and last time we came a few months ago we though it was pricey but still good quality. This time however I think they have pushed it too far, the portions way too small and the prices way...More
