Went here for special birthday celebration. Booking online was extremely easy. We were seated in the Secret Garden room which is our favourite of the two dining areas. Absolutely brilliant and attentive service. Excellent food and drinks. A real treat

The experience was fantastic. We had been to Michelin starred restaurant the day before but the food, service and experience was far superior here. We were made to feel very welcome, and the staff and chef were very accommodating to our requests. The food was divine, and the sommelier was knowledgeable and friendly too. Would thoroughly recommend this place.
