“Excellent Food, Lovely Service”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

First visit to St. Peters which is just down the road from us so nice to be able to walk to a restaurant and not worry about driving. It was quite quiet when we first went in but soon filled up so we were lucky to get a table. Our starters were smashing. Soup was chicken and mushroom broth which my husband said was very tasty - quite a small portion but just right for a starter. I had Waldorf salad (just fancied something light and Fawlty Towers came to mind, they hadn't run out of "Waldorfs"!!!). Very tasty and quite filling, beautiful dressing and crisp and crunchy. Main courses were steak with peppercorn sauce and ox cheek - steak tasted like steak used to taste like, a really good flavour and a fairly large portion, ox cheek was rich and tender, with honeyed parsnips which were lovely. We had savoy cabbage and bacon on the side, between us but was more than enough as the food was so very tasty. The bacon was very flavoursome. Puddings were braeburn apple tart with butterscotch sauce and a rhubarb posset. Very tasty. The food was excellent - local ingredients but cooked with care. Our waitress was very friendly but not too friendly and we really enjoyed our first visit here. Prices were reasonable and we will definitely be going back here. The tables were just far enough apart and the atmosphere was cosier now they have a curtain across the big windows facing their courtyard. It does feel a little "empty" but as they've just started out that's to be expected. Pictures on the walls were nice too. I'm sure it will be fantastic in summer in the courtyard. Very much enjoyed it and my husband who is not a man for "nouvelle" style food was pleasantly surprised by the taste and portion sizes. Thank you for a lovely meal.

“Will be back”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

Our first visit and not our last. Food was of a very high standard from the set menu choices. Service was friendly but showed the morning after a busy Saturday night syndrome. As it had only been opened for 2 months it will mature to become a very popular venue for the discerning.

“small portions , big price , limited menu !”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Limited menu only one thing i would of eaten and they had run out so couldnt all have it !

you have to order extras as in you will get fish but no potatoes or salad!

the waitress dont ask if u want these extras when you order so you suddenly find yourself with not enough to eat !

Noisy !

Pricey for what you actually get one small piece of fish £13 , chips £3.50 side salad £3.50

altho the food tasted nice just wish there was more of it and more choice !

“Really good food hope it gets more customers”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Went to dinner on a Wednesday evening with friends. It was a real shame that we were the only table in the very large resturant we asked for music to be put on as it needed some atmosphere. The food is really good, I had brill with cockles, kale and rosti potatoes. Fish white and flaky really well flavoured. The 42 day aged steak was cooked perfectly tender and the best home made chips. The service was not special but okay, but the food is definitely the star of the show.
