Birthday dinner on a cold wet night left us a bit deflated. Starters of hummus, bread, etc were good but mixed fish platter was disappointing with too many grilled veg and chips seemed out of place. Malaysian curry was bit dry. Staff friendly.

3B went out of their way to ensure we got a table after a booking mixup. The service was friendly and well timed. We have eaten here a number of times and the food (and wines) are always on point. The venison main and beef...More

A super lunch today. Food is excellent and portions not too large. Great menu choice and very different dishes. The staff are cheerful and the waitress despite spilling wine all over my shirt we laughed about it. It is a small restaurant but not noisy,...More
