I had heard good and bad things about this place so decided to try it for myself. Thankfully I used a voucher for my visit as I would not have been happy if I had paid full price. We were on of four couples in the restaurant and they forgot to bring the water we ordered, the starters were ok but the main courses were way below par, my wife's chicken was bone dry and my salad was straight from the fridge. The one saving grace was the deserts, they were excellent, will I be going back there, I don't think so, not even with a voucher.

Ate here before going to the theatre. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The price was very reasonable. We would definitely go back.

My wife and I enjoyed a two course lunch at the Tasting rooms for the princely sum for £6.95. Both starter and main course were very tasty and of good quality, staff were most pleasant and nothing seemed to be any bother. Comments from previous diners one has to agree in regards to service being a little slow, but then again we were in no hurry, we did have the table by the toilets, but this was not so much a problem, but have to agree that the drinks were a little pricey. However taking into account the quality of the food, service and the price we paid, we both felt this represented excellent value for money for a lunch time on a Saturday.

This is a lovely restaurant come wine bar, Enjoy my time at this place, the staff were friendly and very efficient (Have a laugh and a joke with a few of them). The owner was there on the night with the manageress and things seem to run smooth.

Not too impressed by this place. Overpriced. Seafood paella which contained chorizo with no indication on the menu that this dish contained meat.

Also when asked to move from table beside toilet, waitress seemed surprised.

Staff polite but we were disappointed that they did not offer some kind of discount in view of the unexpected meat. They all seemed to be in their twenties. Maybe if there had been an older possibly more experienced staff member, they would have had a better idea of how to respond.

We did not leave a tip, as we felt something was lacking on this occasion.
