    Regrettably we were underwhelmed.The RESTAURANT seems to have lost its way and I cannot see it surviving ..Only three tables were occupied on a Friday evening. Vitella Milanese came without spaghetti Milanese from which if gets its name and a sideorder of green beans was vastly overcooked and flabby. A seabass fillet was salty and bony. Zuchinni fritti appeared to have been grilled and not at all what we are accustomed to. Strangely our party of five were each handed a wine list!

    Food and service excellent, such a shame it was so quiet.

    Warm welcome, pleasant staff and good location, seated on terrace. Party of 3. All starters [carrot soup, smoked salmon and beetroot carpaccio] very good. Main courses - duck [x2] very good, lamb cutlets rather 'ripe' but not 'off'... Our guest decided to leave 2 of the 4. Chef should not have cooked this lamb or let it out of the kitchen, can't just blame poor supplier. Rioja win excellent. Will certainly visit again. On such a quiet evening [a Tuesday, with very few customers] some gentle background music would have boosted the atmosphere.

    Lovely setting, very nicely decorated inside and a top class experience from start to finish. The waiting staff were all superb and the food was all cooked to a very high standard and well presented. Highly recommended!

    very nice atmosphere and beautiful place. Great service. Food was good but not not amazing though. Good selection of wines.

    Loved the outside eating area-perfect for a summer's day. Had the Sunday Roast-pork. Everything on the plate was well presented an utterly delicious. Very tasty. Would have liked more time between receiving our drinks and our meal. Not enough time for chilling with a glass and just having a chat before having your meal. Other than that-lovely.

    Attentive service and good food. Pretty surroundings. Will be back to try Sunday lunch.

    Terrible.....had to wait one and half hours for main course at lunchtime - we were their first customers at 12.20 and we got our starter at 1.20 and main course at 1.50. The main course was chicken breast and it was tough and dry. There were only a few customers in the restaurant at the time.There were a lot of flies around our table and in the restaurant.
    We complained to the waitress about the slow service and food and she said they were having trouble with the chef but she still gave us the bill and did not offer any discount . We paid and then I complained to the manager as I did not think my comments would be passed on. She did give us a refund. Will not be going again.

    Although it was only £15 head the food was very much below standard. The choice was extremely restricted and not as good as any of the sample menus we had seen on the internet and at the entrance. I realise it is a restricted budget but that is not an excuse for cold greasy whitebait, meagre portions of pear and Parma ham and mistakes in the printing of the menu ( mash served when roast potatoes were shown) we wish we had left after viewing the menu choice but it was very embarrassing as we had invited friends to dine with us. Unfortunately we will not be doing it again . We have dined here in the evening but because of this experience not again.
