    Limited chose for vegetarian, only one dish, but risotto was very good. Décor like an old peoples home.

    We came here on Saturday evening with great expectations, we were not disappointed and felt that this was one of the best restaurant meals that we’d had in a very long time. The restaurant looks stylish, the staff are helpful but not imposing. The menu looked really good. To start, the mini-breads and butters were a delight, we didn’t even have to ask for bread or ay extra as you do in most places now (yes, we know we pay for it eventually…). For starters, we decided on quail and the haggis and black pudding, both were superbly presented and quite delicious. Our mains, cod and sea bream were equally superb and the accompanying vegetables/sides made them exceptional (especially the puy lentils and chorizo!!). Together with a bottle of wine and coffees, the cost of £100 was not extreme, given the superb quality. We are going back someday soon

    A group of nine of us went along to try the a la carte menu as the restaurant had had good reviews but when we got there we were told we had to have a cut down menu as there were more than seven of us; this was on a Tuesday night when the restaurant was virtually empty! Having a restricted menu defeated the whole purpose of going there and there was nothing to warn us that that would be the case when I booked or even when I phoned to confirm the numbers. Added to that it took more than an hour of backward and forward discussion with the staff to try and get the menu extended, which they did marginally, before we could sit down to our starters and this with an empty restaurant!! On the plus side the food we eventually had was excellent. Just a shame we couldn't have enjoyed the full experience.

    Over all impression was good. I like the colour scheme, and atmosphere. The food was good, as was the service. One of the ladies toilets had a broken lock on the door .

    The service was excellent and the food was certainly 4*plus especially as 5 of the 6 guests were gluten free.

    The service at the bar and the restaurant was brilliant. It is worth checking what's on the menu before booking as they have changed it but not updated the website, had I known this I would not have booked as the new menu is not as appealing. The food that we did choose was very nice if a little salty. The restaurant itself is of a high standard and matched by the service however having to listen to a singer from the adjacent wedding made for a funny evening, some may find this irritating.
