Absolutely great. We've been a few times now and took friends last night. Nothing too much trouble. Great food.

    A very pleasant experience. The food was delicious and the service attentive without being intrusive. The stairs up to the loo and the loos themselves could do with being smartened up to match the high standards elsewhere.

    Friendly welcoming staff. Excellent food, especially enjoyed the duck and chocolate moose. Could have been a bit warmer.

    Lovely Sunday lunch menu. Pork dinner good but my sons felt there was not enough meat to satisfy them. We would also suggest 2 balls of sorbet as one did look a little mean compared to the chocolate mousse and salted caramel pudding. Overall very good value and we will be back soon !

    I was recommended to try the restaurant by a friend, whose son is training to be a chef.
    I am so glad I made the effort to drive there, the staff were excellent and the food was absolutely superb.. I'm not normally one for deserts but I succumbed to try the apple and wild blackberry crumble and oh my goodness I want another one.
    Do not hesitate to try this restaurant, you will not be disappointed. I'm looking forward to booking again very soon.

    A great venue, with huge potential. The menu wasn't hugely inspiring, and the staff could have been more enthusiastic, but the food was fine. It was quite telling that on a Friday night the restaurant was only about a third full, with little atmosphere. We used to come here a lot when it was the excellent Le Gallois, so maybe we had set our expectations too high!

    Excellent waitress service, nice interior, great food and very reasonable prices too. The fish and meat dishes, as well as the desserts are lovely.

    Really enjoyed the lunch. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Didn't feel rushed between courses. The food ws absolutely lovely - good sized portions without feeling overstuffed. I had the the pork faggots followed by panna cotta. For me the only downside was the music playing I felt it was too loud. The venue is quite echoey and hearing my friends conversation was quite difficult. I would prefer no music at all, in my opinion people go to eat and converse not to listen to music.

    However I would definitely go again and have already recommended it to a few people.
