    As always exceptional food, wine and service. Without a doubt the best restaurant in town.

    First class in so many ways . Best scallop I have had . It took longer to read about the dishes than to eat them in some cases . "Samphire" = one small stalk , "with beans" = two beans . Sometimes too little to taste perhaps . Still looking forward to going again .

    Superb 8-course tasting menu, a mix of old favourites, including our favourite smoked eel dish, and new stars - Jon's Coronation Cauliflower was sooo tasty. The changes necessitated by the virus have not spoiled the service, as warm and friendly as always.

    We had the gourmet meal with the wine flight and it was superb every course was delicious and the wine complimented the food perfectly the wood pigeon was so tender and tasty and I particularly liked the beetroot I’ve never been a fan but the way this was cooked has made me realise what I’ve been missing also the damson soufflé what an experience that was delicious the service was excellent too very observant and very smiley we came away thinking what a fabulous meal that was we have eaten in some lovely restaurants and this is definitely one of the best
