Fantastic champagne breakfast that I would recommend to anyone. Small portions but were of an excellent quality and presented beautifully. Couldn't fault it at all. Thanks for a lovely brunch.

We enjoyed a really good meal here. Excellent food and comparable service. Boudin sausage followed by perfect steak and indulgent trio of treacle tarts all accompanied by decent wines. Go, and great meal out.
