My son, who is a chef, recommended this restaurant, as he had visited there a few weeks previously with his partner.
The atmosphere and furnishings are very much as they were when this restaurant was operated by David Adlard, for whom I think Roger used to work.
We all chose the Sampler menu, with wines matched by the restaurant to the various courses. Two people asked for substitute dishes for some of the courses, which the restaurant were happy to agree to.
The food was excellent, top quality, Michelin standard, as were the chosen wines.
If I have any criticism of this restaurant it would be that the pre-dinner drinks/cocktails were not up to par. The vodka martini I ordered was not 'very' dry as requested and sadly was warm? Lots of ice is the very basis of a dry martini. My friend ordered a margarita, but unfortunately the restaurant did not have tequila. I think a gin and tonic would probably be all you can expect.
As a martini lover, this could have ruined the whole evening, but the happy, friendly service and wonderful food and wine more than made up for the shortcomings in the cocktail department!
Everyone had a wonderful evening!
