My partner and I went here for my birthday treat. And we loved it. We had the taster menu with wine, and added extra cheese course. I recommend this unreservedly! Every course just got better and better (and it started out delicious from the word go!) The attention to detail in both the food and wine was so so good. The service was great, knowledgable, friendly, all at that perfect balance.
For people not in the area, it may be a bit of a trek to go, but a definite destination and worth the travel. We were welcomed and felt at ease to stay all evening. The only little fault was my aperitif. We were offered a cocktail to start, and the waiter offered the classics after possibly being on the back foot when I asked what the bar could make. I think it would be great for some speciality drinks to have as much thought as the menu and wine obviously do; and the little mistake, was that there was to much alcohol in my cocktail! Now that doesn't happen often, and I imagine many others would have liked it just fine, but it was too strong for me; very quickly they wisked it away and fixed it perfectly.
Back to the food. It was all amazing. Perfect portions for 9 courses, at the end you're just a pinch over that "super full" feeling, where there definitely isn't an ounce more room for anything else and that was all really quite needed with 9 glasses of wine and a cocktail along with the food!
It is a special night out price for most people; we paid for the two taster meals with wine and the extra course, cocktails and 2 bottles of water; £182. A special night price; but complete value for money. And we've seldom paid that much anywhere and been so happy with the experience!
We're still talking about it a month later! It's a definite visit for that special occasion, and we will be back without question.
