“Quality food”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Purchased the 6 course taster menu deal through Travelzoo, had a few concerns after an error by the restaurant with our reservation but these were soon forgotten when we started eating, Leek & Potato appetiser, really nice, Game Terrine, fresh and tasty, Raspberry and Champagne Granite, Pork belly main, cheese board finished off with bread and butter pudding, all of the courses were very fresh and had a homemade feel to them, we had port with our cheese and dessert wine to finish, I was thoroughly impressed with the quality ingredients, staff were excellent and we will definitely return.

“Harrison's coped with our party of 16 no worries.”
Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

We had a recent family get together and were joined by 4 ozzies.
We had a lovely meal and were so looked after by the lovely staff.
The Restaraunt is convenient to me as its within walking distance.
We will return withor without the ozzies.

“Superb food and a real treat!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Eaten at this restaurant on the travel zoo deals a few times now and have to say very impressed with everything they do here, and the wine isn't overly priced either, a real refreshing treat. feel sure this will become a foodie gem over time. Only issue is parking but i guess you cant have everything! The church opposite might be able to accommodate the patrons if they were approached, i don't suppose they are inundated with clients.
