    Nice venue, lovely food, drinks service was a little slow. The pear frangipane tart was very tasy.

    Fixed price menu in the deal was good however they did try to charge us the full price. Staff were very helpful and service quick

    The staff were friendly and helpful with the menu. The food was nice and the cocktails were made to their normal high standard. The pudding (brownie & strawberry sundae) were one of the best I’ve had and even tho it was a fixed price menu the portion was full sized. I’ve eaten and drank there before and I’ll be happy to go again.

    We waited to be greeted by a lady who was on the phone for about 5 minutes without even being acknowledged. Two of us ordered the Eggs Muerette to start and all four poached eggs were hard! The waitress had to leave us several times to ask questions she couldn’t answer for us. The main course was very disappointing I had chicken breast with a garlic sauce, the chicken was so chargrilled it tasted very burnt! With a meagre portion of Savoy cabbage in the side this was supposedly ‘spring greens’ my friends duck was disappointing too! We didn’t even look at the dessert menu. Wine was very expensive £35 for three glasses!!! Eyewatering! Then after that they have the audacity to add a £9.54 service charge! We paid the bill, grudgingly then hung around waiting for someone to get our coats, which didn’t come until we actually had to ask for them!!
