Some truly exceptional spaghetti bolognese. Nothing like a bit of comfort food away from home! Pricey, but the atmosphere is up market and the portion sizes and quality justify it.

This restaurant is very attractive, as it is clean, bright, modern and airy. Yes, it is a little echoey inside, but it had an upmarket feel about it. The service was friendly and prompt. I had a dish which was described as chicken, lemon and thyme. Whilst it was nicely presented, it turned out to consist more of lettuce than anything else. So a triumph of style over substance. My partner had spaghetti Bolognese which was presented with a large marigold on the top - sorry, but to my mind, that is rather pretentious and unnecessary. After a disappointing first course, we were in two minds whether to order dessert, but we glad we did so, as the pannacotta was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. So, whilst presentation is important, I would advise that content of a dish should not come second-place.
