    An elegant dining room. The old library books around the walls in their original shelves make it one of those special places. We opted for the tasting menu. Portion sizes just right, taste sensations. Despite the missing breads and rices we were more than full by the time we got to the last course. Couldn't fault the service.

    What a great way to get out of lockdown blues. Had a great meal, highlights being the mussels moily soup and tandoori chicken and for mains, the duck. The cocktails to start we're also good. We've come here on and off for 10 years and it is very reassuring that the food is as good as ever. We would recommend this to anybody.
