Excellent meals across starters and mains. The mains were generous so you didn’t leave hungry. The shared lamb dish was very generous as a joint portion. An enjoyable night out.

Staff were so helpful right for the start.... food is beautiful and sized perfectly to enable you to have 3 courses. Staff were attentive but unobstrusive. Best night out we have had for a while.

Delicious food and drink, but... the best thing was probably the astounding service from Alan! My colleagues and I had the chance to try out Hummingbird’s private dining room, which maintained the lovely atmosphere that the rest of the restaurant did. The food was amazing,...More
