    Excellent food and service, attentive staff, good ambiance

  • ((((( 7 December 2016 by Helen from Norwich

    The welcome was warm and genuine, the ambience was calm and intimate, with plenty of space for each table to have privacy. The food was all excellent, interesting, well presented and very tasty. Our two waiters were both charming and attentive to the right degree. I am looking forward to another visit.

    I was taking out customers who were looking forward to the experience , but was left disappointed with the service. the waiter did not offer any drinks menu, the we had to seek his attention for service for menus, water and additional drinks.

  • ((*** 29 November 2016 by Tee from Brighton

    Nice and friendly Lovely staff but overpriced for what is essentially, comfort food. Zilch atmosphere. Hotelesque vibe. Bland food. Needs a bit of magic. Prime location needs a bit of zing or super elegance. Missing soul.

  • ((*** 29 November 2016 by James Dickson from Leeds

    Food was ok, nothing amazing but tasty enough. But the service was very hit and miss...had to ask if we could order, forgotten starters, no dressing on the salads, kept having to ask for water. The staff did keep saying they had a big group in...if you can't cope, don't have big groups or don't have other diners in when you do have big groups. It didn't exactly make us feel welcome!!
