“Lovely food and great service”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

My wife and I have just eaten in this restaurant and were very impressed with both the quality of food and the exceptional service we received. There was a nice reception area and the tables in the restaurant were very well laid out and not crammed in. The menu offered an interesting choice of fish, meat and veggie dishes. Our food was very well presented from the kitchen staff and served by the friendly waiters and the taste lived up to the appearance, beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised to find that the wine was at half price on our visit so the overall cost was good. Because of this we will visit again. I was expecting parking problems, however on the Thursday evening we attended this was not an issue. My only surprise was that the place was not packed!

“Great food”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Fabulous food, beautifully presented with great service. Could have been perfect if it werent for the orange fake gerbera and orange napkins. What a shame the tables werent dressed to match the magnificent food.

“Supurb modern British cuisine”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Relaxed and just the right side of casual/smart; friendly staff; a tight menu, local food, excellently cooked. Will definitely return - why was it not packed; not a fashionable part of town perhaps?

“Outstanding Food: a great night”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

We have never visited before but will certainly return. The food was especially good with an interesting menu. I especially loved the Plum dessert which was very tasty. Service was friendly and helpful. The cost was more than we would usually pay but was well worth the £80 for two people.
