Service was good and timely and food portions 'huge' and tasty...would recommend for somewhere 'different' to try for a change from... More

Quirky and somewhat chaotic interior but the food is very good. Had the spicy small chicken, excellent. Great merlot by the glass. Excellent treacle tart. Service was a little slow and 'hit and miss' but did not distract from the overall experience.

The restaurant looks amazing - they have few different rooms, one of which looks like Medieval castle. The Secret Garden is very beautiful - with many trees on a huge terrace hidden away. The personnel is very helpful and friendly and the most important the lamb was the most delicious. Perfect for a romantic dinner.

I held a 30th Birthday Bash here on the evening of 18th June. Hired the whole upstairs, the minimum spend was reasonable, the canapes were excellent, the staff were fantastic and overall just had a great night.
