We have going to this restaurant for a couple of years now, once every month or two. The food is always of top quality and well presented, and the menu seems to get slightly larger each time giving you a good selection. The owner is always friendly and along with the lady that runs front of house, it is a... More

An absolutely fabulous dining experience with none of Edina's wackiness but great food, the Whitebait started was an excellent intro & not disappointed by the Calf's Liver or my wife's Catalan Fish stew. The wine was also a stunner but not over-priced. All in all a great evening & we will definitely be returning very soon.

I find this a most pleasant place to eat. Great beers, terrific wines and food that I really, really enjoy. The restaurant is modern, light and airy, the staff friendly and proficient. Altogether a good place and I wholly recommend it.

We have been here a few times and the quality of the food, the presentation of the food and the overall atmosphere has always been fantastic. One of us was gluten intolerant so the waitress happily explained that they have gluten free bread and said all of the meals that were OK to eat for gluten free customers, which was... More

A perfect spot for a "Spoil yourself" lunch or dinner. This charming restaurant never disappoints. The menu has something for everyone, and the service is very attentive without being obtrusive... I started with a beautiful salad of Mixed melon, peaches, honey & Jambon ( Spanish cured ham). perfect for a hot day. My partner had King Crab with raw spinach... More

Mid week visit with some friends, chose the Horse and Jockey for location. On arrival we ordered drinks, Gordon's and slim line please - reply "We don't serve Gordon's here, we don't like it!" Sorry for having poor taste I wanted to reply. We ordered a simple meal, nothing to fancy as it was just a midweek supper. Two starters... More
