    Rather uninspiring. The staff didn’t realised we booked with the fixed price menu and then made us feel awkward about it. Food was average, 3* at best. Really wanted to try this place but won’t be returning.

    Service was excellent. Bar staff extremely helpful and attentive. Food was stunning. We had the Chateau- Briant which was superb. It was our 25 wedding anniversary and we hadn’t complimentary drinks and truffles in the bar. They made our evening very special and members of the waiting staff were all aware and offered their congratulations. We have dined there many tines before, we will continue to do so. Amazing!

    Good value very good food. Good atmosphere. And the staff were lovely, we were an older group and they were very attentive. So often older groups can be ignored, but not here.
