Lovely views, food was delicious, however the service was not as attentive as it should have been.

Lovely views and excellent staff. Menu limited and permanently fixed. Poor for the premium price. London prices but not quality or choice.

Food and staff were lovely. I felt it lacked a little atmosphere

Lovely restaurant, top class food, great service, splendid views. Dealing with the social distancing superbly, waiters/waitresses must feel awful having to wear the face masks all the time. We both had Chefs specials - amazing.

Very disconcerting for my partner to visit the ladies and find two women having a full body wash. One had her feet in the sink. A complaint was made and dealt with, but this sort of thing should never even occur. Restaurant was adequate, food pleasant, wine overpriced. A few days before we were overcharged for wine in the bar. Not terribly impressed.

Excellent from joining the queue, to beIng taken to the table. The lady organising this was fantastic and explained the new ordering procedure. The food and drink arrived Swiftly. Good overall experience in these strange times. Well done to all staff.
