    It's an all round favourite and always confident when I take someone along or recommend it they won't be disappointed in any aspect, except the tricky descent down the slippy cobbles.

    Very nice meal with lovely, friendly service in relaxed setting. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. My ribeye was the best ever. One slight negative was the lamb, just a fraction too much fat in the meat which made it a little chewey.

    The restaurant was very nice, staff were very welcoming and friendly, nothing too much trouble. They explained the dishes as to what was in them very helpful. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. Great food, excellent service could not ask for anything more.

    Excellent lunch as usual. Extremely good value for the set price, due to finish in November though. I cannot eat cheese and, without me having to ask, I was offered an alternative to the parmessan crusted (free) bread on offer, which was much appreciated.

    Outstanding is the only word we could find.

    From the moment you arrive you are greeted by a warm and friendly member of staff in a bright and airy environment. Service is first class by again friendly staff.

    The food is outstanding, great selection and good value, this is fine dining so don't expect 'cheap'.

    We had an amazing meal, in lovely surroundings, served by amazing staff, thank you.

    Had express lunch. Menu was interesting and varied. Food excellent and beautifully presented. Wine list excellent with good range of per glass offerings.
    Service was friendly and attentive.
    The restaurant had a pleasant ambience and was more comfortable than it appeared on the web site..
    The value in the express lunch is exceptional.
    Will be back to sample the fixed Saturday menu and the dinner a la cart
