Wow, on arrival we were made so so welcome. Allowed to choose where we sat and given time to browse menu. There was a fixed menu which was excellent value and you could have two or three courses or specials board or a la carte type menu. Huge selection of delicious options, very hard to decide! Food was made in good time, delicious and beautifully presented. Decent portion sizes too. Staff were friendly, attentive and couldn't do enough to please. Shared a Banoffee cheesecake which was decadent and to die for! Definitely hope to go again and would highly recommend :D .

This was our first visit to Monkfish , recommended by a friend and we werent disappointed. The scallops were succulent and tasty and off set by wilted spinach, a main of hake risotto was melt in the mouth. The only disappointment was the fish soup which you would expect to be of higher quality in a specialist fish restaurant. That said the Head Waiter took our comments on board, agreeing to discuss it with the chef. Lovely evening, excellent informative and friendly service, brilliant wine list. Highly recommend, looking forward to next visit.

Great food and atmosphere. The prawn and garlic starter was succulent and the monkfish main melted in the mouth. We couldn't resist sharing a pudding... chocolate and hazelnut gateaux - superb! We'll be back soon. James, and all concerned, thanks for the great service.

the food was very good. the price was what i would expect.
atmosphere/ambiance was excellent.
i liked the fact you are given a jug of water without asking, also given bread ( not sure whether you are charged for this though, hopefuuly not as it is a good gesture ).

the food is of a french influence so be clear as to how you want your meat cooked.
i had steak well done which was medum rare to me. this does not take anything away from how nice the meal was, i should have realised and said cremate the meat and make the chef cry.

i would reccomend this restaurant.

I have been to this restaurant three times as I live locally,it offers a good selection of seasonal produce,the intimate dining room makes you feel more at home than a restaurant it's brilliant.the main menu is expensive as is the wine but the standard of food is superb.
I personally think the Early Bird menu is brilliant value and the same care and detail is evident.Overall a lovley place to eat and the atmosphere is so relaxed and in pretencious for an upmarket eatery.
