    The food was sublime. The service impeccable. The ambience very relaxing. All in all, wonderful.

    We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and it was a perfect evening. All the dishes were excellent and beautifully presented. The drinks complimented the food perfectly and Max, the waiter/sommelier, was knowledgeable and very pleasant

    Great overall experience. The sea bass with the elderflower hollandaise was splendid.

    Had the 6 course taster menu with wine flight. Some really good combinations of food and wine, especially the smoked eel course. A lovely touch was having individual chefs presenting the food. This is a strength and probably worth the owners working with their teams to develop this further.
    The only thing I would really change is the seating for 3 work associates having a business meal, a bit too cosy for the person stuck in the middle.

    We had a wonderful dining experience. The food was amazing and the service top-class. For both of us our favourite dish was the whipped roe on squid ink crackers - it was exquisite. The French was a bit expensive but well worth it for a special night out.

    Decor of the restaurant was too dark for our liking but all the food was amazing and because of this we cannot choose a favourite.

  • ((((( 27 August 2018 by Michael from Oldham

    Really enjoyed the opportunity to experience the menu. My only suggestion is that following a visit and discovering a particular dish, which I would love to try as a main course,this cannot be facilitated,hence I would never be able to try the meal again.
    This is not meant to be a critism but just a suggestion. I know the practicalities to accommodate this may come into the reckoning.
    Service fantastic, dinner was lovely. Restaurant is fantastic. Many thanks

    Lovely dining experience, intimate, and professional yet perfectly informal. Excellent,attentive and knowledgeable staff.
    Food was simply delicious, beautifully presented and complex but not at all pretentious. The lobster and chicken dishes were favourites but we were wowed by the Apple desert....just beautiful. Wine was pared perfectly and enhanced the experience.
