Very knowledgeable and friendly staff, very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere but most of all absolutely incredible food. We have dined in many Michelin star restaurants home and abroad, this is up there with any of them and indeed our current favourite.

We ate and stayed here back in April. We arrived early, and luckily it was sunny so we could have a beer or two (pre-dinner) on the "terrace" (really the smoking area). The room was comfortable and well appointed, but it is the food you...More
