Went here to celebrate my 50th Birthday with my partner and 9 members of my family ranging in age from 75 to 19. We ordered off the ala Carte menu and not the fixed price menu as we felt the choice on the fixed price wasn’t to our taste.
I was a little anxious after reading some of the reviews on TA as they appeared to differ from my previous experiences of the restaurant over the last 15 years although I hadnt been for around 5 years. However, I need not of worried as the food and the service were excellent on the night.
We had drinks in the bar area before dinner and then moved to our table and ordered, the food arrived in a timely fashion not really quick but not to slow that you would notice, it arrived for the whole party all at the same time on hot plates and was delicious and every plate was empty on the way back to the kitchen.
The mains were very good I had slow roast Lamb, which was fantastic, and others had Fillet Steak, Morrocan Lamb and Sea Bass and all were excellent, I had already spoken to the restaurant prior to our visit regarding side dishes as these are expensive and they were very helpful and did a selection for the whole table for £17.50, which was more than sufficient for everyone.
My dessert was a little disappointing as the Fondant in the chocolate trio was undercooked but everyone else’s was Ok and when I looked my bowl slightly bigger than all the others so think it was a timing issue, my son had the cherry tiramisu which was divine.
Overall it was a great experience and everyone commented on the quality of the venue and food, the bill was very reasonable for 11 people with 4 bottles of Prosecco and 2 bottles of wine and lots of beers it came to under £50 a head and the service charge is not automatically added to the bill which I think is the way it should be.
The only issue I had was that it was a bit cold in the area where we sat for some of the older members of the party despite the presence of a heater which was on.
Other than that great and I would return again.
