Was treated to a meal here and wow what an amazing evening. Faultless service throughout with great attention to detail. There is a taster menu available should you wish. Definatley worthy of a Michelin Star - the food was cooked to perfection and delicious with all the flavours bursting. I chose the scallops and venison. A good choice of sweets,... More

A lovely birthday celebration, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The presentation was immaculate and just the right amount for the two of us. We will highly recommend this experience to others.

Each and every dish was cooked to perfection and bursting with flavour. I love the special... More
