Welcomed by the owner/ chef who is a larger than life character, menu is varied and different, three courses of just excellent food. Starter of scallops wrapped in bacon in a pea purée sauce was lovely, main of salmon on a cucumber and... More

This is a very small restaurant with only approximately 20 covers, so it is essential to book. Service is very friendly and professional; we felt like welcome friends. The food was excellent. I had duck leg and pigeon breast to start - it was beautifully cooked and huge. I had venison for my main course which was excellent and my... More

This was our first visit but certainly won't be our last. A lovely ambiance, friendly and welcoming staff, outstanding and well-presented cuisine, fine wines and good value. I had crab for starter which came with two types of caviar, followed by cod loin, topped with brown shrimps, on a potato roesti with pea puree - every mouthful was a delight.... More

Ate here last week for the first time. Brilliant food in a romantic restaurant. The duck confit starter is a must. It was nice to meet the chef/owner. Definitely recommend.

The waitresses are friendly and attentive. The food is lovely and the setting is very classy. The only negative comment I have is the space inside, as i felt like i was disrupting other diners when i had to get up, however, I fully understand it kind of adds to the quirky setting. Warner personally delivered the complimentary shots which... More

Our second visit to this wonderful restaurant. Once again the food and service were exceptional, despite there being a "full house". The menu is varied and supplemented by a tempting specials board. Food is freshly prepared and you are told in advance how long it will take, so be ready for a relaxing and memorable evening. We are planning a... More
