    We have used this restaurant quite a few times and the quality of the food has always been excellent. The service is first class and very friendly. The manager recognised us from previous visits and came over to chat to us.

    Excellent food and service although the restaurant was very quiet. Scallops and crab ravioli starters refined and tasty. Steaks and halibut also very good.

    Disappointed. Have been several times before and always enjoyed, but not this time. Lobster and crab ravioli was overpowered by the tomato sauce and I also found seafood shell in the ravioli. Lamb dish was uninspiring, basically sliced lamb on mashed potato served with cabbage - no finesse or particular skill evident in either the cooking or presentation.

    Like the living room feel to the restaurant .The layout of the tables is good...not too close that you are overheard.Service is impeccable but friendly.
    Favourite dish is ham hough terrine. OX cheek also delicious.amazing value for express lunch.
    Think takeaway option for coffee and brownie is very clever

    5th visit and as always food was fantastic. We had the set lunch which is great value for money. Service very efficient. Drinks reasonably priced, and have given only 3 stars as the white wine wasn't chilled as we would have expected. Overall another great visit.

    Great lunch menu with 2 courses and coffee at just under £10. At that price you might expect tiny portions, very limited choice or poor quality...but quite the reverse. Nothing was skimped on quality, flavour or presentation. The tiny warm bread rolls were delicious, as was the rollmop herring with crunchy, fresh apple and celeriac slaw starter followed by succulent ox cheek - which just fell apart - with creamy mash and a silky and moreish. The staff were friendly and efficient and the modern decor felt relaxed and welcoming. The wine list offered good value and a reasonable range of prices. All in all, a great experience and I think my next visit will be for dinner and an exploration of the a la carte menu which looked delicious.
