Came here for a birthday meal with a few of the girls, and I advise that if you are a student you deffo cannot afford this place. I ordered the duck stir fry which was a staggering £13.95 so I assumed I'd be getting a dancing and singing duck along with my stir fry. When the meal eventually arrived in... More

My husband and I ate here recently and it was amazing. We had a set menu for two with extra dish and every meal was so fresh and tasty. I highly recommend. Beautiful building and relaxing atmosphere. Staff were very nice. One of the best I have been too.

What a lovely restaurant to have a birthday celebration. We were seated upstairs where you can admire the architecture of the building. The service was perfect and the food was amazing. Thank you.

We visited this restaurant in December as a group of 10 and were left rather disappointed The staff were few and far between and it took a lot of effort to manage to someones attention The starters were fantastic, full of flavour and good size portions (the only reason I'm giving it more than one star) After a long wait...
