Lovely food although I did think the main menu was a little bit expensive. We were a large group and all the food was delivered on time. They do have a cheaper menu,but not as much choice. I did not have a desert but they looked really delicious.

Good menu choice, food yummy, good service. You must book though as always seems to be busy which helps to make for a good atmosphere. Cost us £80 for 3 of us which included starter, main and coffee and 2 bottles of wine.

Dined here on a Tuesday night with a group of friends - just £12.95 for 2 courses and choice of starters such as steak and chorizo sizzle to mains of fahitas/beef stroganoff/steak etc. Good experience - service was excellent, food was acceptable although nothing was outstanding but overall I would return because of the price, the range of dishes and the atmosphere.
I tried the lamb henry which was quite poor - more inedible fat than meat and the jus was quite bland - I'd try the stroganoff next time. The bolognese got a big thumbs up from friends.
Recommended.

Everything about this restaurant is lovely.only issue is the staff are at your table so often u feel like they have joined you for your meal ! I am all for good,attentive service but I don't think we got through one ten minute conversation without being interrupted,and when your time is up for the table you certainly know about it ! Not cheap so I don't think a relaxed meal should be out of question. Apart from that tho,this really is a nice restaurant. Good choice on menu,lively food,spotless restaurant so wld go back.
