    What a fantastic experience. Fantastic service, lovely food, albeit could have been a bit hotter, great jazz and wow a cheese room which is amazing.

    Great restaurant...very cosy. Service was good and attentive. Although at the end it got quite busy and we had to wait a while before our server was free to get our bill. Food was excellent and portion size decent. Cheese board was exceptional. Wine selection excellent too. Will definitely return and stay for the live jazz band on Friday night!

    I love this restaurant it never fails to impress. Service was immaculate and the food amazing. I go here for the South African wines and the Cote de Boeuf.

    Everything was perfect! One thing, though - the staff could be a little more conscious about turning their backs on customers. There were a few times we were trying to get their attention and we were faced with three backs. Perhaps facing opposite ways to each other would be a place to start.

    A group of 11 of us went to the restaurant for late lunch. The food and drinks orders came quickly, the food was delicious. We loved the ambience. Live music in the evening was lovely too, not too loud, which makes it easy to chat. Overall, a great afternoon. We'll definitely go back.

    Nice wine and meal, served promptly. Steak was very nicely cooked: medium rare was juicy and tender. Chips and sides were also nicely done, and sensible amounts. Would definitely return for another impromptu business meal.
