This is my third or fourth time eating here and I've never been disappointed. Once again, the food was amazing. I only live about half an hour away so it's not far to travel for a lovely meal - I know I'll be back and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

Have been twice before, but this time the food was awful. They are trying to be creative but the dishes just don't work and are badly cooked. For example, the bacon wrapped pheasant was completely dry and the bacon cremated. Also, the crab starter had no taste of crab and was completely over powered by other strong horrible flavours.

From the moment we walked in we were attended to very attentively, very organised and given menus to read whilst given drinks where the menu was described and explained to us in a relaxed seating area, we ordered meals before being taken to our table. The food was beautiful and faultless and exactly as the menu. Sadly we ordered a... More

Went with my Girlfriend and had a really great evening. Food was delicious from starter through to desert and-as a fixed price- was pretty good value for the quality. Service was just right and the wine list looked good too. Would recommend.

What an amazing evening. We had an early sitting at 6:30 which was perfect for our needs. Fantastic and friendly service, professional but approachable - great combination in my book. The food was fantastic, we had 2 courses each with petit fours and coffee to finish. I currently have quite a restrictive diet but had more than enough choice on... More
