    Fantastic wedding anniversary dinner. We were seated in a private booth and given free Champagne and chocolates with our meal and were treated like royalty throughout! Food was good, especially the Lamb Rump.

    The food was delicious and superbly presented. The cod loin was a particular favourite with our party. There was a good choice and I was happy with the size of the portions - not too big!

    We met Miguel the new F&B manager who was highly professional & told us about the exciting plans for the restaurant. We chose the tasting menu & flight of wines, both were fabulous! Having been before we were disappointed this time that some of the staff didn’t know anything about the wines as before. Davide stepped in and was very good. Will definitely return as food very good & excited to see what the changes bring.

    When I walked in there was no one to greet me. I had to look for someone. I was then led into a very dim, darkened room which was nice but needs more light, way more light. Tables were decorated well but I noticed some had flowers and some didn't. Could do with more colour. The garden is very pretty and the water wall lovely.
