“Don't judge a book by its cover”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Had a lovely meal on Friday evening with friends (20/9/13). Very good menu, food served was excellent and wine pairings suggested worked perfectly. Service was prompt and attentive, our waiter was knowledgeable, prices were reasonable and represented good value. This all came as a great relief for as we arrived at this restaurant for the first time our hearts sank a little. The external look of the restaurant is average, and the decor inside a little dated, but as I say, don't judge a book by its cover as the evening proved to be excellent. We have booked again with friends for a few weeks time. Looking forward to the tasting menu. Highly recommended if you want good food, good service and don't want to pay over the odds.

“Fantastic Food again.....”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We have visited this restaurant a few times now and have always been impressed. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by friendly staff, who throughout the evening are very attentive though discreet. We enjoyed sampling the new cocktail menu to start and would definitely recommend the raspberry mojito!! The menu is always creatively put together and the food is fantastic. We will be returning soon.....

“Great food, relaxed atmosphere, good value.”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Had heard some good things about this restaurant and so booked a table for Saturday just gone and happy to say that found it a very enjoyable experience and great value for money. We both had the six course taster menu,with the accompanying wine choices, and although all of the food was good the lamb cooked two ways was sublime..and the pigeon wasn't that bad either. The staff were friendly and well informed, in particular each course was accompanied by a description of both the food and the choice of wine which raised the experience beyond the norm that you'd expect.

Although perhaps the decor could do with a little updating the relaxed, unhurried atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff, excellent food which is great value for money, more than outweighs this slight niggle.

Will definitely be going again and recommend anyone to give it and go and support this fab little restaurant.

“Top service with excellent food to match”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We went to this restaurant at the last minute as a celebration. It was a Thursday and we were surprised at how quiet it was. Just a couple of other tables taken. This is a great shame as the quality of the cooking deserves a wider audience. The front of house staff are quietly efficient and informative. The meat was cooked to perfection complimented by sides. We enjoyed interesting starters and unusually we ordered a sweet to share because the rest of the meal had been so good. We were not disappointed. I would urge the folks of Hinckley to patronise this establishment -you wont be disappointed.

“What a little gem!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Delighted to have stumbled across this lovely little restaurant whilst staying away from home. We used trip advisor to choose where to eat and I'm glad we did. Quiet on a week night but perfect for us as on our anniversary meal we did not want to have to shout at each other to be heard. The waiter was attentive and extremely polite and a credit to the business. The good was absolutely delicious. Well presented and clearly made with care by someone who has a genuine love of cooking. We had a lovely evening and would certainly return again. Many thanks!
