I visited with my husband mid week, there were a few people in but it wasn't busy. The service was good and the waiting staff were polite and attentive.
The menu had a small but varied choice although I was a little dissapointed with the vegetarian options. (2 starters and 1 main, however one of the starters and the main were risotto so that limited choice even more) However the food we both chose was well prepared and beautifully presented.
The decor of the building is good although I felt that the restaurant lacked finesse, it is marketed as a fine dining restaurant and I think the food could live up to the title, however it's the little things that matter, the cutlery was cheap and didn't match, the napkins were paper, the tables had no cloths and were scratched and chipped, the butter from the starter was left on the table until the desserts were served by which time it was limp and almost liquid.
None of these things are major points which would spoil the meal, however they are things which could be easily improved upon to make the restaurant more of a 'special occasion' place than 'a meal out' place.
We had a 20% off voucher and our bill came to £45 for 2 people (inc 3 courses, 2 drinks each - lager & water, and tip) I would have felt it overpriced if I had paid the full amount but it was good for the amount we paid.
I'm not sure I'd choose go back, there are other places nearby which I feel offer a better experience, however if a group of friends had booked for an event then I'd happily return.
