First time at this restaurant, staff were friendly and food was very tasty and well cooked. We will definitely be going back. The only downside was they added 10% discretionary tip to the bill without asking. I personally don't like restaurants doing this, a tip should be down to the discretion of the customer and shouldn't be automatically added.

Staff very friendly, very busy restaurant. Food was good. Lots of families and parties so a good sign on a Saturday evening

The décor – think elegant, think modern with a splash of tradition – is immediately welcoming. Its impressive cluster of champagne bottles … believe me, we needed no further incentive to enter.

Once in, the staff were exactly to order. All lovely, helpful and friendly, from the beaming barman who welcomed us, our attentive waitress and the proprietors who helped us with our menu choices. And, with such a diverse menu, (I never did find out what the tiger’s whiskers were) we appreciated some guidance.

Food, ambiance, staff were the best....that's all what make a great resturant.
