Despite having lived up for road a mile or two for 15 years, last night was my first visit to the restaurant although I had heard good comments about it.
We booked in for the St Valentine's Day meal and were given a warm greeting by the attentive staff. We enjoyed a glass of wine while we awaited our table and studied the choices on the three course menu.
We had a nice table and also liked the fact that the resident pianist sat playing enjoying tunes at the grand piano. The service was just right, very attentive, but relaxing. We liked our food very much, my duck starter was a tad on the small side, but tasty. Our mains of medalions of beef were lovely and filling. We decided that we couldn't manage a desert, but shared a cheese course.
The only slightly annoying thing was that at one end of the restaurant was a large round table of about 12 people celebrating one couples anniversary. Fine for them, but rather noisy for those of us couples wanting a quiet romantic night. Do wish restaurants would stick to couples or foursomes on the night itself, but that is just a personal view.
Will definitely go back for an evening meal or Sunday lunch.More
