    Basically it all went swimmingly, but for the fact that the B.A.T. deal was news to the waiter and I had to highlight it to him.

    Saturday night table for 6 people. Good selection of Champagnes as sensible prices. Good food offering and a practical wine list. Tables were well spaced and the restaurant had a good atmosphere

    We were very pleased with our meal. Nine of us dined following a day at Ascot. The surroundings were lovely and the food was fresh and delicious.

    Very good food, nicely presented and delicious! The confit duck with lentils was superb, and my friend's steak was cooked just right.

    Lovely atmosphere, tables not too close together, with comfy chairs. Staff were very friendly, and the food was lovely - freshly cooked and full of flavour Cant wait to go back and visit again

    Lovely food, if a little unusual. Took a while to get the type of table we wanted but otherwise an enjoyable experience. Will go again.
