Saturday afternoon lunch, 23rd August, my partners 50th, will not forget for many reasons and this being one of them.
Food,service, surroundings all beautiful. I can't praise this restaurant enough, (and I'm a chef) only one moan!! And you are made aware on entering, the hot water in the toilet isn't very hot is scalding.
I love food and this place is my heaven.

Thank Flop4stu

Went there cos it was close to my hotel, and how glad am I that I did. Stunning, original and pretty food; cosy, unpretentious and stylish decor (belying its rather dour exterior); smiley and ridiculously competent service; good choice of music too - Lou Beed thru Jake Bugg . Shame I live 6 hours away.

I ate here last Tuesday evening and I have to say the meal was one of the nicest I have ever had. I had the sea bass which was gorgeous, as was the mashed potato. The steak that my partner had along with his starter could also not be faulted, we were even allowed the recipe for the sauce! The peanut butter and jam and butterscotch ice creams were to die for. I will be talking about it for a long time and it will take a lot to top it. Thank you.

I came here midweek with 3 friends for the first time. The restaurant has a very nice shabby chic decor and the staff were very welcoming. We shared starters: Thai fish cakes, cured trout and the bread with nut dip. The cured trout with beetroot was delicious as we're the fish cakes. We then shared a sea food platter which was huge and excellent quality and one person had chicken. The staff could not have been nicer. Will definitely return.

My partner & I were heading home on a Saturday nite & decided to try to find somewhere for dinner. We past the Apairy on our way home so decided to try to get a table for dinner
When we entered the place was busy, but we asked if it was possible to get a table.
We were greeted warmly & were soon seated, from start to finish the staff couldnt have been nicer.
We enjoyed a lovely meal, including the meat sharing board. It was amazing, could have served 3 people rather than two.
We went on to enjoy puddings & lovely desert wine.
Our first visit was a success & we will be back.
So much choose on menu, we want to try it all
Thumbs up on all aspects
