“Acceptable food, but overpriced”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

My wife and I went here for a weekend special lunch. We had wanted to come for a while and were waiting for the right occasion. The staff were extremely helpful and polite (we have a young son and daughter who they were very helpful with) and the menu looked great. We were told that our son could have a smaller child portion for the main but that the price would be the same. That was fine by us. What we were not told was that he would pay for two courses regardless of if he only had one. Set menus fine but always good to have some a la carte on there to deal with all eventualities.

The food was good however the pasta was too dry and the portion serving for the fish was not a full fillet from the centre of the fish but rather a thin end fillet. Not acceptable when paying top whack London prices. Very high prices are fine but only if the food justifies the value. This was not the case. Total bill of £125 for 2 starters, 3 mains, 2 glasses of proseco and 2 small glasses of white wine. I would have found this fully priced even at London's better restaurants.

Conclusion. Food was good but price not justified. If bill had come in at around £80 we would be back there tomorrow. But as it currently stands I am afraid we will not be returning. There was only one other table in for the whole lunch period which makes me think others may well have had the same experience as us.

“Tempting tapas...”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We visited the restaurant last night and I have felt compelled to write a review straight away! The surroundings of the garden bar and tapas restaurant are oozing personality, both in decor and atmosphere. I was wearing flip flops (yes, mad I know) but didn't once feel chilly!

The food was just divine, each dish as delicious as the next; we even reordered more than one choice! The service matched this, both with friendliness and attention to detail.

We will be returning, many many times!

“Good restaurant, Good value”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is a well established local restaurant which we had not visited before. We had lunch. The fixed menu is £14.99 for two courses and £17.99 for three, which presumably is changed from time to time, one of which is vegetarian. We had onion soup and terrine for the first course followed by liver and bacon and fish cakes for the second .All excellently cooked and nicely presented. There is a wine menu which has a variety of choice at reasonable prices. Service was prompt and friendly. In addition to the main dining area there is a tapas bar outside under cover which is open in the evenings. We went midweek without a booking and had to wait for a while for a table to be free, so booking is advised. We will come here again.
