Had an early supper here on Saturday night. Food and service were both fine. However the menu was uninspiring and the general impression we've been left with is one of being expensive for the experience.

We listened to a saxophonist in the background, while we drank champagne, then ate focaccia with olives as a starter, followed by chicken (for me) and duck (for me friend). The skin on the chicken was crispy, and tasted perfectly delicious. Veggies sautéed in a balsamic reduction were lovely. These were accompanied by beets with goat cheese beignets, which were...

Whilst the food was average at best, what really let down our meal was the mediocre customer service. After moving tables (as did two other parties) away from a noisy large group which the restaurant were unable to manage appropriately and therefore dominated the restaurant, the manager was unapologetic and came across as totally unbothered by our complaint. Definitely won't... More

We visited here to celebrate our granddaughters graduation and what a lovely meal and experience it was. The food was excellent and enjoyed immensely by everyone. The staff were friendly and helpful despite it being very busy. Thankfully we had the foresight to book this gem of a place. Pity that there is nothing like it in Birmingham.

We have chosen not to eat here despite good reviews. Why? The vegetarian option.. Lazy menus and lazy chefs are becoming the bane on my dining life. Really! Pasta with an arrabiata sauce!? That's the kind of food we cook when we can't be bothered to make an effort. Please show a little of your talent and imagination, then we... More

Visited here for a romantic dinner early evening and it was quiet but started to become much busier later so I would advise booking beforehand The food was as described- it's certainly worthy of high acclaim, the steak I had was perfect value for money and the presentation is wonderful. The restaurant and is quirky and intimate without being overly... More

We visited in Sep'13 (to be clear) but had an enjoyable evening with my family. We did not have a booking but were seated immediately as we turned up just before the dinner rush. The food was fantastic and our glasses were never empty. Not the cheapest of dinners in Leicester but suitable for a special occasion and has a... More

A noisy group of 16 booked this for a leavers party, a few of us had tried it before for their CBA menu which is great value, so decided to book again. So glad we did, we were well looked after by the young team of staff, we had the set "party" menu at £30, I had the ham hock... More
