Quiet refined environment nd atmosphere. Very helpful staff. We hadn't booked and arrived as it opened and were lucky enough to get a table. When we left teh restaurant was full. Space is divided into sections which makes it cosier. Food lovely. Cheese troley fabulous.

I have had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant three times over a four year period, each time the food was awesome, a great value menu offering many dishes and a superb range of wines and local beers. Thoroughly recommended

First discovered 2014 and a "must go to" restaurant since, which is unfortunately only annually. The menu choices are superb, the service excellent and the price very fair, even for a poor valued £ right now. The scallops and the ris de veau are to...More

I've passed by a few times, but on this occasion along with friends we made a point of booking (strongly recommended), we were not to be disappointed. The welcome was warm, the menu varied, the attention spot on. One of the party has a food...More
