“As good as any restaurant in the area”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

We popped in for lunch and are glad we made the effort. The food was excellent with good attentive service. It's as good as anywhere in the north east.
The only slight downside was I don't believe the layout and decor are up to the same standard as the food. Rather bland look with uncomfortable chairs.

“Excellent Lunch”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Warm welcome, service attentive but not overbearing. Food selection was good and of high quality and all prepared beautifully. Very busy Thursday lunch time.

“Gorgeous food”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

First time we had visited here and we will definitely be going back. Olives were unbelievable...to say the least. Rib eye steak was the best we had ever had......cooked to perfection. Atmosphere was nice and lighting was just right. Best bistro meal in a long time. Red wine was very good too.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

A combination of good food and pleasant staff made this a very enjoyable evening meal. Consistently high standards, reflected in the fact that it is extremely popular. Best to book in advance.
