“Ticked all our boxes”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

It was a special birthday and we spent a lot of time deciding where to go. It needed to be near enough for a taxi not to break the bank, quiet enough for the hearing-impaired member of our party to join in the conversation and lastly, and most importantly, to serve excellent food. We were delighted to have all our requirements met.

The restaurant is small, but the tables are well spaced and the decor is pleasant. The standard of service is extremely high and the evening offered value for money.

“Even after Cameron's visit it's trying hard”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

Good and tasty food, nice staff, reasonable prices. Got invited to a lunchtime birthday celebration, all 6 of us enjoyed the starters, mains and desserts. Calf's liver a real treat (see photo), as were the cheese souffle and smoked fish. Desserts also interesting.

“Saturday evening”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

All four of us enjoyed the evening. The restaurant is fairly small but the tables are well spaced out and you can have a conversation without having to shout at eachother.
The downstairs tables have a view of the kitchen which we alway like.
The menu is fairly short but we had no problem finding dishes. The portions were decent as well.
Wine list is also short and they don't have very high priced bottles so this is not a place to find something different.
The service was quick and attentive.
We will go back.

“Absolutely Average - a disappointment”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Booked this bistro for a birthday meal having read the glowing recommendations on Tripadvisor.

Nice restaurant & attentive service let down by uninspiring food.

We were both underwhelmed by the taste & presentation of the food to be honest - we could have eaten better much nearer to home.

For starters, neither the mushroom soup nor the wild mushroom & blue cheese dish were anything special, the curry main course a disappointment and the cheese board small and uninspiring.

A good place if you are in the area maybe (though we think that Damson in Stockport is better) and certainly not worth a special trip.

“Really great food.”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I came to this place based solely on the positive reviews on trip adviser. I was not disappointed! The food was to a very high standard and very well priced. Drinks were also well priced. I would definitely come back here again.
