The place is amazing, the staff are fantastic so friendly , attentive and knowledgable about the dishes. The food is just delicious, mouthwatering choices and an experience.

    What a fabulous lunch. It started well with a beautifully crisp cornet of salmon tartare and caviar, and got better and better. Special mention to the home made marmalade vodka. Wow!

    Loved all my choices , the timing between courses was perfect . Our friends were impressed to , for us all to have a fine dining experience without the formality was Fantastic.
    As a corporate driver for various companies I will certainly be voicing my opinion.

    Really enjoyed the food n the staff are lovely
    All I would say is when four people are dining the tables are way too small for drinks n plates n it feels claustrophobic!
    We have been a few times now ...
    The menu is tight re options but this is fine for us as we will try anything....

    Must admit when we saw the menu we were all a bit disappointed about only having three or four choices for each course. However each course was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. The little touches of an appetiser, warm bread pre starter and the macaroons and chocolates to finish were lovely. A wonderful evening - thank you!
