Visited for the first time with my wife after wanting to go here for sometime. Visited on a Saturday evening where the atmosphere was lively. The food was beautifully prepared and very tasty, this included an amuse bouche, starter and main, unfortunately did not have room for dessert. The service was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this place... More

What a wonderful meal & faultless friendly service. I'm not sure where to start, we had such an enjoyable evening. We had chicken liver pate & Brie to start, both lovely. The chateau briand was cooked perfectly & we really enjoyed having it served with a soufflé, asparagus & roast potatoes. The peppercorn sauce was very light, which made a... More

We had a lovely evening at My Great Grandfather's restaurant. The service was quick and friendly and were very knowledgable about the wine! My only point I will say is the food is VERY rich so make sure you are 100% when you order a three course!

Delicious food in a delightful setting with friendly, helpful staff. We had duck liver and brie wedges to start with, both of which were delicious followed by Chateau Briand which was perfectly cooked and melt in the mouth. It came with amongst other things, a fantastic Soufflé which had it been a little larger would have been a perfect meal... More

We had the set menu which was good value. We had the lamb shank each as a main -quick warning the portion was huge!! Shiho looked after us so attentively and the Turkish delight ice cream was amazing! We are not local but if we were back that way would definitely visit again.

We had booked well in advance despite it been a Monday night as we have heard it can get busy but in this night there was only two other couples dinning as soon as we entered we were greeted by a friendly waitress who told us we could sit anywhere. It was a cold night so... More

The food here is delicious, generous portions and very efficient service. Chateaubriand perfectly cooked. The white chocolate creme brulee was delicious, we'll definitely be visiting again and highly recommend it.

This was my first visit despite living locally for some time - the food and service were excellent. The menu is interesting and the food delicious. I'm sorry to say that what put me off coming before is that I thought it looked like a tea shop from the outside - I judged the book by the cover and was... More
