Beautiful restaurant, perfect atmosphere for a lovely romantic dinner, music and interior deco were my favourite. The staff were amazing. Couldn't fault any of them right from the doorman at the entrance. We will be returning definitely.

    Cerise were absolutely amazing! The staff were wonderful, we were given our own little room to celebrate a baby shower in which we decorated. The afternoon tea and service were impeccable. Thank you for a wonderful experience

    Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, the food was great but we didn't like all the cakes within the afternoon tea.

    I went for afternoon tea. Service was faultless. On request to move table as close to another party. Waitress moved us to another location without hesitation. Flexible, courteous and good service. Afternoon tea comprised of a good range of sandwiches and plenty of cake.

    Best were delicious little cakes for afternoon tea. Sadly the jam tasted only of sugar not fruit and the cream very hard. Awful loud music throughout. Good toilet facilities.

    Lovely ambience, food wonderful, stunning wines. Let down by disappointing service, e.g. having to ask 4 times for a cranberry juice, and had to ask for desert menu 35 minutes after main course cleared away. Maybe a bit short on staff last night?

    We had attentive service without it being obtrusive. The starters were excellent; those who had the codling said it was good but the portions were too small; those who had the pork said it was tough. Indeed I left more than 50% of mine. The vegetables were only OK. The coffee was far too strong.
