The menu is very limited and has very little in the way of regional recipes or local produce. The setting is a commercial unit with attractive views over the car park. The décor is something between a traditional British pub - note the brass plates - and a branch of Athena (remember that!) - with framed Monet prints hanging on the walls. The staff were pleasant with the exception of the head waiter who has a condescending tone and a patronising manner - he actually told us it was protocol to serve the walk-in customers last, despite the fact that we arrived earlier than people who had booked in advance! We waited 20-25 mins before being given a menu.

Having said that the food, although nothing inspirational, was very tasty and the service, after the initial delay, was good. From my experience the prices are similar to other Michelin Star restaurants but bearing in mind the above the overall experience was disappointing.

Have been here before but this visit was one of the best visits to date. It is expensive but given the Michelin star it is good value. Plenty of choice on offer and the service was very good on the night in question. Will be back.

Food was excellent, service perfect, beautifull place - stylish but not to fancy. Prices, like prices - for a michelin star there is always a premium to be paid. However I woud not say expencive, rather adequate for what you get.

Went here for my birthday. The staff was fantastic, but the food was a bit disappointing and somewhat dated. The menu could use an overhaul and could benefit from some more seasonal dishes using the lovely produce and seafood of the region.
