We celebrated our daughter's master's graduation with a lovely family party in the private dining room on Thursday 16th February. Both the meal and service were as ever completely perfect.

Went last week for sunday brunch. Arrived at 11am so its a fair time. Staff were half asleep bless "em! Foods okay but nothing to write home about. Bit on the expensive side for me.

One of our favourite restaurants in Bristol. Usually some interesting choices on the menu, and has always been cooked excellently. We've been several times and never had a bad meal.

Good service, quiet and relaxed atmosphere. We enjoyed a three course set lunch for £16.50. There was a meat, fish and vegetarian option. The food was very good. I had boquerones(anchovies in olive oil) with cauliflower, walnuts and salad followed by gammon, mash and greens. Dessert was chocolate brownie with salted caramel and Chantilly cream.

Most recent visit was for a family birthday in July and did not disappoint! Always great food and service whenever we have been. Like the set menu option and the variety of choice, there is pretty much something for everyone.

Thank Grace C
