Hadn't been here for a while was really impressed by the food. Great choice available and all was just perfect. Often find that dessert menus can be disappointing but definitely not here. I would highly recommend it for lovely meal out

I booked for 20 people to celebrate my sisters 40th birthday. From the time I booked to the actual meal the contact I had was faultless. Then on the night the staff were wonderful and attentive. The service was quick and the staff were very professional. The food is to die for. We had the early bird menu so it... More

The restaurant is downstairs but we were upstairs in a separate area which had a wooden floored small area with mini bar for the wine reception then through to another women floored area meant for the main event (I.e. for us, it...

Overly familiar waiter with bad service. Decor nice. We asked for some water while we read the menu. It was like sea water...full of salt.. Got a 'sorry that happens sometimes with this filter system'. Not an overly busy night only 4 tables in and our food sat on the pass for a good five minutes until it was served... More
