    Visited with party of 6 and all chose the offer of 2 or 3 courses with a glass of wine. Food was inspiring and we all enjoyed our choices. Service was good balance of attentive but not intrusive. Favourite dish is difficult because all dishes good. I had the chilled melon and coconut soup followed by speltotto and both delicious. Strongly recommended!

    Excellent restaurant with great service, and fabulous food, all perfectly presented and wonderfully produced. We had the three course set dinner menu which was fantastic and a great balance of tastes, and a bargain price too!

    Very attentive, friendly staff, pre theatre booking. Crab portion a little small for the price. Lamb beautifully cooked.
