After a fortnight in a not-so-great resort with a lot to learn on service and food - what a treat to eventually come here. This is a place that knows how to do service and food. No surpises I guess but still a treat! I don’t think you’ll get any bad food or cheap produce here, you can tell my looking at the menu. I had a set menu or pea soup/cod and mini cheese board and no complaints. I will go back at one point to do the a la carte, it looked very tempting but we only had a last minute 5pm booking and preferred to wait for an occasion to splash out. Bread waiter, wine waiter and a front of house to welcome/take coats etc – 5 star. Waiters know the menu inside out and were very well trained to the appropraite standard for this type of place . The place is very intimate, almost has a feel of a living room on entry, quiet atmosphere, perhaps too quiet for anything more than a low key meal as a couple or small group. (they have separate space downstairs for groups that I spotted on the way in). It’s the kind of place you want to contribute to the atmosphere by being relaxed and low key, taking in the food, wine and service. We went at 6pm on a Friday and it was a mix of couples/after workers and small groups arriving for an evening out - but all very subtly managed. For 3 courses off the 5pm menu, 2 glasses of wine and 2 x coffee (with handmade chocolate): about £60.
