“Expected more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We came as a group of 6 one evening between christmas and new year, the menu sounds lovely but unfortunately the quality doesn't match up. Our starters and deserts were actually very good but the mains were poor quality, items were missing from the description, the meat was dry, no condiments were available at all (mustard, apple sauce, mint sauce etc.) vegetables were undercooked too. No one came to ask how the meal was either during any course which is poor service & they weren't busy. It was okay but I wouldn't go back.

“My new favourite restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

I had an amazing meal here a few months ago so recommend to my boss for our Christmas outing. I am glade I did as I had another amazing meal. The main course of Seabass, Squid, New Potatos and Baby Shallot's was the best meal I've eaten in a English Restaurant for years. Every element of the dish was cooked to absolute perfection!

Will be going again within weeks not months this time.

“What a shambles! Avoid at all costs. ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

Just attempted to have a family meal here with 7 of us. The service was rubbish and the food inedible. We did only have to pay for drinks in the end, but it's disgusting that a restaurant in our capital city thinks this is an acceptable level of service.
