    Delicious fresh ingredients combined into beautiful dishes. Had Taste of Summer menu - one normal and one vegetarian- and was superb meal. Customer service was first class; felt valued as a customer.

    It was my birthday, we booked for 7pm and were shown straight to out table by a number of smiling, welcoming staff. On this occasion, a group of four young men were standing drinking nearby and I was beginning to worry they'd stay all night (I have a mild loss of hearing and bare floors, glass windows and large spaces plus loud conversations nearby are hellish!) and the waitress understood perfectly and moved us to a newly vacated alcove where we were very comfortable! We had booked the set menu but preferred the a la carte selections. The asparagus starter was divine and the trout! Crispiest skin, perfectly cooked fish, served with peas and pea sprouts I still dream about. The purple flowering brocolli we chose to go with it was beautiful. Highly recommendd: Service, hot, beautiful food and buzzy ambience. Perfect!

    Met two friends here for Saturday lunch. Staff very welcoming. Excellent set menu offer. We were all very happy with our choices plus our glass of prosecco. Other wines on offer quite expensive but managed to find a small carafe of Southern French wine for £25 which worked well for 3 of us. Tables re quite close together but fortunately it was not totally full so it was easy to talk. I was surprised that it was not busier as it is close to Spitalfields Market but we did eat an early lunch. Would certain go again.

    Great food in a busy restaurant at lunchtime. Slightly crowded but I can’t begrudge them that - it was a few days before a Christmas!

    We had the set lunch meal. The choice was limited, but the food was very high quality and very good value. My roast cod was excellent. The service was very good and it was a relaxed atmosphere.
