We were recommended this by a friend and it doesn't fail to impress. The menu is quite small but we easily found food that we liked. It is a quiet cosy restaurant which is perfect for a romantic dinner. Staff were very friendly and attentive when they needed to be while keeping their distance when not required. Would definitely visit... More

Haven't visited this place for about 5 years and went with friends last weekend. Great to see the decor has been revamped as it was quite bizarre before but now it feels much cleaner and fresher. Service was generally really good - we had drinks at the bar before being shown to our table and the staff were friendly and... More

The waitress was efficient and very pleasant, £85 for 3 courses, 2 soft drinks and 2 glasses of wine was exceptionally good value for money and my... More

We visited this lovely restaurant to celebrate a family birthday, the atmosphere, service and food were all fantastic. Steak was cooked to perfection and the pork belly was sublime. Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely waiting staff, the atmosphere was relaxed, comfortable and happy. It's fantastic to have a restaurant of this quality in Warsash.

Another lovely meal - we pre-ordered the Chateaubriand as it was a special occasion (birthday) and they very kindly obliged although it was not currently on the menu. Decor has been changed again and we really liked it. I like having a little distance between the tables so you feel your visit is more intimate. Looking forward to going back... More

4th visit since change of ownership and still excellent . The menu has been trimmed with 5 choices in each course . Could not fault any of the courses . We a lucky enough to have this fine dining experience on our doorstep. I hope it continues to grow as a business and keeps the current chef who deserves recognition... More

Some people would hate the decor but I loved it. However my brandy had a fly in it! Because of this It isn't quite a 5/5. The food is perfection though!

Hello and thank you for your review. I can only apologise that a fly was discovered in your brandy. I'm baffled to think of how a fly got there and I guess there's a million different conclusions. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and rest assured this is a very rare case. On a much more positive note thou we're glad... More

First visit having heard mixed reviews. We booked quite late, but they managed to accommodate us on a Friday night. The restaurant is small, however this makes the atmosphere intimate and friendly. The wines were of good quality and not overly costly. The menu is small, but you know it will be fresh and seasonal. The standard of service was... More
