Hadn't been to this restaurant in quite a long time - maybe 10 y!! What have I been missing?? Lived up to all the great reviews I'd read. A late-ish meal on a Monday night? No problem. The wine, meals, dessert and coffee could not be faulted, although my vegetarian main was perhaps a little more peppery than I might have liked, but I still really enjoyed it - it was a cold night after all! Great service and ambience (It is a lovely, loved old building, a unique stairwell entrance to the dining room and a pleasant outlook from the window, even on such a lousy night). Went with a friend, will take my husband back next time - it won't be so long between visits from now on!

My husband and I dined here in December 2011, we were part of a group of 9.

Fabulous wait staff ... attentive and very pleasant. They really did make you feel that nothing was too much trouble. Well done !!

The meals themselves were very tasty ... but presentation was a little mystifying !! A large, whole courgette wrapped in a piece of bacon ! ? Never seen that before !!

Delightful upstairs dining room. Scallops to start and Venison to follow - all superbly cooked and presented. Excellent wine list.

We had a wonderful night here again. Service is friendly and warm with great knowledge of the wines and food. Meals were truly mouth wateringly good. The Oysters were the bigest and tastest we have ever had (and we have had a lot!). Can't wait to return.
