    As ever, every course was fantastic. The halibut was perfectly cooked, lots of restaurants get that wrong. The tables were well spaced and we felt very covid safe. All the staff were fantastic, so friendly and very knowledgeable and all wearing visors.

    As always the food was exceptional accompanied by a beautiful Rioja and Prosecco, the dining experience is well worth every penny! And I can’t wait to rebook

    We enjoyed a set lunch for our wedding anniversary recently. I chose a salmon starter which was delicious and definitely my favourite dish. My husband had an amazing tomato salad with cheese mousse. We both had a main course of delicate pea ravioli and cheese board to finish. All excellent in flavour and attention to detail in the presentation noticeable. The decor is welcoming with its earthy colours, crisp white table linen and colourful artwork. The service attentive and friendly.

    Wonderful food. We had the 7 course taster menu and each course was excellent, particularly the tomato dish. How they can raise the humble tomato to such a flavoursome and interesting dish is Incredible.

    Amazing food and staff only improvement I would make is having more cider options as they had none. But overall insane quality

    Excellent food. Delicious combination of tastes. Friendly combination of staff & welcome. Unfortunately they had run out of two of the four half bottles of red wine (the Claret & the Rioja). Maybe they could open a full bottle & decant a half into a carafe.
