We were a table of 14 & had a set menu. The food took a long time to come & was so bad that 4 people sent their meals back & had the money removed from the bill. I resent paying restaurant prices when I could have cooked a much better meal at home. Never again

Nice restaurant but very noisy and while you may think this gives atmosphere, it was overbearing! Food was average and I'm sorry to say I believe I may have got food poisoning! Obviously it's hard to pin point but I was very sick for 24hrs afterwards. Staff were attentive but mainly to larger tables! We had to call on several... More

Eleven of us (mixed boys and girls) went for Sunday lunch. First thing to say is that we all got on a large round table. So many restaurants can offer a long table or two pushed together for this number and you have to get up after each course and move around if you want to talk with each other... More

The welcome in this place is fabulous. The staff are very attentive and could not have done more for us. It's family owner and run and the chefs are of a high standard. Excellent wine list and the food was superbly prepared and presented. Really worth a visit - if you can get in nowadays!

Average food,lukewarm. Inattentive service. Waiters apparently trained to ignore you. Long delays in getting any attention. No apologies forthcoming for anything including unknown object found in food. Do not go there unless you are a regular.

Was my 1st time eating there, was with a group of 7 girls, our food was beautiful, everything was cooked perfectly & I'm really fussy, service was great and they were packed out. 1 & only complaint was they charged for bread & olives, which we got taken of the bill, which I thought was very cheeky as not every...

Saturday night in Essex the Resteraunt was overbooked so the noise was ridiculous literally couldn't hear my neighbour speak so food ok not great ok service but we left early as we couldn't communicate I think if someone books for 70 percent of the resteraunt it really should be for a private party. I hope they earn loads from the... More

Food was terrible! The set menu for our special party sounded good but in reality it was anything but! The mushroom starter consisted of 4 button mushrooms-really stingy and hardly any sauce. The "sea bass" was terrible and everyone in our group sent it back or left half of it! The chicken was smothered in sickly cream sauce with the... More

Food was greasy and inedible, service was very slow. It is very expensive for such poor quality food and poor service. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone and we will not return.

Booked dinner for Tuesday evening for the family. Staff were very attentive and the food was excellent! Drinks flowed and we had a fabulous evening. Music in the background played till late and they moved the tables aside so we could dance. Thanks Guys!
