Thoroughly enjoyable evening. Not sure whether I deserve some commission for ordering the strawberry dessert or Hickmans for developing it, as several tables nearby saw it and changed their dessert order!
Front of house staff knowledgeable and very approachable, and they very much left us to enjoy our evening, which was excellent.
The food was superb, we had elements in the menus we hadn't tasted previously but all fitted in extremely well with food and opened our eyes to some interesting but very pleasant combinations.
I also liked the fact we could order several (very good) wines by the glass as opposed to having to buy a bottle and being restricted.

Outstanding in all respects. Not only was the food exceptional but also the front of house team.

We had a lovely evening. The food was very good, with only one or two small disappointments but generally very positive. The service was also good. The one issue which annoyed me was being charged £24 for water, which is a bit obscene in my view! We would have been completely happy with tap water and that’s what I expected when asking for still water. We weren’t offered a choice of tap water or mineral and I didn’t see the price of mineral water clearly advertised anywhere. Quite off-putting after a great evening. We paid a lot for a good meal plus £56 for service (which I was happy to pay) but I don’t like getting ripped off like that!

The experience was excellent as always, we have been several times. However we noted that the wine prices had risen over £4 a bottle for our usual wine selection so opted for beer and a soft drink for the driver. The chocolate, cherry and pistachio dessert was wonderful and the halibut ceviche was also excellent. I had the lamb for main which was really good but i felt the balance of meat to vegetable elements on the plate needed a little tweak, i needed more veg on my plate. the piece of potato was tiny.
The introduction of bread is an excellent move ! i loved the selection.
it was a very warm evening and we sat in the back of the resturant which was very warm, the fan that was being used to cool this area had to be moved as too noisy for the table nearest it. some future thought to better air con longer term will make everyone in the resturant more comfortable.
we will be back.
