Had lunch with approx. 30 others in the group. Service was really good and considering the large number of people the food was good and hot too.

Food good quality but a shame the veg is served in very small portions. We had to request another dish for the two of us. There is no thought in the servings.... 3 new potatoes between 2 people and a swede portion that amounted to no more than a tablespoon. At the end of the meal we requested the bill... More

Our first visit to this restaurant with my wife and daughter for a birthday celebration. Had heard good reports, and can now understand why. Our food was superb; perfectly cooked, nicely presented, efficiently served and good value from the 2/3 course menu. We chose Sea Bass and two chicken dishes for mains, which were all delicious and served in generous... More

Disgusting rude staff. Tried to eat there last night at 9.15 and we're ushered out as they were closing. We are both professional people in our late 40s so not lager louts. I have never been treated this way in any restuarant anywhere in the world. The food may be OK but the management need to understand customer service, something... More

Arrived early for our 7:30 pm table, and were led straight in. No rushing us in and out we had time to check menu, enjoy every course and people watch as other diners took their seats and, like us, enjoyed their meal. A couple of new options on the menu plus old favourites. The chicken and chorizo parcels were lovely... More

2nd time here after coming with my parents a few years back. This a group of 6 friends / 3 couples. On entering I was gobsmacked by how quiet it was. One other couple and that was it. This is 8 o'clock on a Saturday - not a good sign. But the food was fab and everyone loved their meals.... More
