Booked for a party of 9. Had never been to the restaurant before and went on recommendation. With a party of 9 requested to pre order (which I hate). I asked if we could go for a reduced menu which was readily agreed to. Advice given as to menu choices.
Arrival was a little fragmented as there is nowhere really to congregate before food. Table was in the window which afforded a degree of privacy. Quite noisy at times but not unpleasant.
Starter of Lamb Scotch egg very nice. A number had the salt and pepper squid which was coated - a shame but it seems to be a rarity in the UK to get uncoated squid.
Two had steak main courses - very positive. Others had fish, chicken pie - no complaints about any dis. Desert was the only part of the menu I didn't chose and personally was disappointed but I think I was in the minority (one of our party order two deserts so can't all be bad)
Bill can to around £55 per head including drinks (only two bottles of wine) which did not seem unreasonable.
Don't recall being advised that 12.5% service charge would be added (where did 10% go??). Disappointed to see that after this had been added, the receipt had a space for gratuity - not uncommon but not a good trend.
Overall very happy with our visit. Lewis the assistant manager was very helpful in advance and on the night everyone enjoyed the food and location. Would happily return.
