    After 3 months we were excited to be returning to our favourite restaurant and we weren’t disappointed. The welcome was warm with even the kitchen team greeted us. Menu choice and food was up to the usual high standard and the service was friendly even with social distancing.We will be dining there again soon!

    The food was excellent, well presented and friendly helpful staff. I thought the scallop started a little expensive and the suites a tad high, but cannot fault the quality and taste of them. Will definitely go again and hope the taster menu will soon be back on board.

    Love how The layout of the restaurant allows you to feel spaced out and almost like you are experiencing private dining. Food was absolutely stunning. From the breads and different butter to a special birthday treat with home made chocolates and macaroons. Loved every second and will be back again soon.
