This was a lunchtime visit, our first but not our last. We both went for the scampi and chips which were delicious. The real joy was our delightful waitress - friendly, bubbly and attentive - anticipated our needs.

Our visit was for a friends Birthday party. The restaurant is small but the atmosphere was great. Candlelit tables made it feel like a bijou French bistro. The staff were lovely and all our food was delicious. Steaks were very good. BYO wine was a bonus for a change . We are looking forward to going back again.

Probably matches The Lantern in quality and price.. it is a decent enough little spot.. most of a group of 12 of us had steaks here on Friday night. They were fine. I got mine rare and it was nicely cooked, but maybe a slightly tougher piece of meat than I'd have hoped... chips weren't amazing. Pepper sauce was mild... More

My friend had booked this restaurant for my surprise birthday party. We were a group of 9 lively girls ready to have a great night, and I must say we had a ball. The staff were so friendly and offered great service, we all enjoyed our meals and I must say the goats cheese dish was gorgeous. I would recommend... More

On a repeat visit four of us ate here on Saturday evening. We arrived slightly early and had no problem getting us seated. Very relaxed atmosphere and our waitress was very attentive and helpful. Food was excellent and nothing was too much bother. Chatted with the Manager/Owner Alex who reminded us that there was a special Valentine's menu in the... More
