Not a place I would have thought to go, but great location overlooking the racecourse and great food. We went on a Monday night so it was quiet and the racecourse was lit up we had a table at the big windows overlooking the course.
Food was very good obviously good ingredients well cooked.
Well worth a try, the 1539 deal was on when we went which was good although our mains all had supplements - still worth it.

We'd booked a meal on a Saturday evening, we'd not been before so had no expectations. It was an excellent evening with a delicious food and good service. The restaurant is due to be refurbished, I hope it remains just as pleasant, we'll definitely look to return.

Very clever strategy by owners to attract custom by offering 2 courses for £15.39. The only problem was that there was a pathetic choice for this offer as the usual fayre you'd go for was supplemented to death. For example, my stunning better half had scallops (1sliced into 3 small pieces) served with Iceland chorizo croquets. £6 supplement? Rock on! My salmon starter was as thin as cigarette paper but thankfully no supplement.

Rib eye & chips were decent enough but again, £7.50 supp?

Total bill for 2 abortion starters , 2 adequate mains , cheese plate (assorted crackers from morrisons) bottle of plonk. £108.

Seating was terribly uncomfortable & the bar area has an upmarket airport lounge feel to it with hideous tall seating areas with low tables.

Service was efficient but id prefer staff that speak english.

Would i return? More chance of me knitting fog im afraid.

We booked a table at 1539 for are valentines meal, the meal was from a set menu with 5 different choices of starter and main. The food was great, the portions were not big by any stretch but over the 3 courses adequately filled us up! The atmosphere was great and we would defiantly go back there again!
