There is no denying that the food here is good, really good in fact. However, there are a few negatives that made the experience not as good as could have been. It's incredibly cramp inside with far too many tables for the space. We were so close to the tables on either side we might as well have been on one long table! We were told when we sat down that the table was booked again for half 9 (not told when made the booking) and when the table arrived ten minutes the staff were pretty rude and gave us the bill and said we had to make a move despite having drinks left! They charge top price but the service and atmosphere needs to reflect this as well as the good.

I always start with the brie parcels which i love and they have the best steaks in town! And the most delicious saute potatoes. I don't usually have dessert as i'm to full!! Its best to book especially at weekends as it gets very busy.
