The food was excellent. I had a sweet potato curry, which was really full of flavour and absolutely delicious. The waiter and waitress were friendly, welcoming and helpful. Couldn't fault it.

We were given a voucher for this restaurant and decided to have the three course lunch. Our starters we had were glazed ham, mackerel pate and watercress soup, all excellent. Next choices were pork belly, curry and mine was sea bass on a bed of vegetables and rice. All very nice. We all had the same dessert, ginger sponge with... More

Our group of 9 was warmly welcomed by the restaurant staff, and the table was very prettily decorated - a good start to the evening. It did take quite a while for our drinks order to be taken, but after that the service was excellent. The food was very good, with generous servings - and we especially enjoyed the Thai-inspired...

Could have done with some Christmas Music and hope this will be the case on over the Christmas Period. Always Enjoyable eating at this Restaurant. The... More

Food was mediocre, nothing that stood out but the portion sizes were tiny. For the price I would have expected more or if the quality was better then I would have rated more. Service was slow between all courses especially desert where 25 minutes went by from being handed the desert menu to being asked what we wanted. No one... More

We received a warm welcome and were well looked after throughout our meal. The bistro is reasonably roomy and our large party was accommodated without a problem. The meal arrived within a reasonable time and the food was as ordered and met our expectations.

Nice layout and surroundings and a warm welcome. We decided to try here as its menu looked interesting from the website. It was excellent and a... More
