First time of eating in this restaurant but I am afraid we will not go again!
There was four off us who went out for the meal our table booked for 8pm at 8.30 we had not been seated and after asking we're told for second sitting they couldn't guarantee a time to eat because of the people on the table prior !! ( as though that doesn't happen in any other restaurants around the world ) at 9 we asked again how long as by this time we were very hungry and fed up of standing and were on our forth drink ! Again palmed off with the table wasn't free yet ! We also asked if there was going to be adjustment to the bill to compensate but that did not go down well And we came to the conclusion they must off only come in just before us or they over booked !? At 9.30 we finally got a table and they took our order but the restaurant didn't seem to be full!
Starters came after about 20 mind seems ok but we were very hungry and rather tipsy so that helped main meal came and although looked ok was not over special and the steaks were over cooked
We did not have sweets or coffee but still the bill worked out at £50 per person so £200 which we all felt was not worth it !

As the title says very expensive for what we had
There was 4 of us the menu read well but at the end of the day its fairly basic. It was tasty and presented beautifully. The garlic mushroms were nice. I had the Lamb hot pot which came in a Tagine it was tasty however there was so much black pudding in it for me and very watery . other half enjoyed it The cost for the 4 of us including 2 glasses of lager each £99 .
Now compared to the Waterfront were we went the week before for 4 of us including a glass of Prosecco befor the meal ,wine with the meal and other drinks at the bar , and the food is far far better as is the service £135 .
Would we go back to The Georgian House as we live in town maybe but for something special we will stick to the Water Front .

rather expensive for average overcooked food although the menu reads very well. The staff were attentive and would probably visit again.
