In this restaurant everyone is seated at once, which does lead to a bit of a crush in the waiting area on arrival. The amuse bouches were excellent, with a little Asian twist. A pea veloute was very good, possibly the best dish of the evening. Halibut was nicely cooked but not wow. Beef was nice with good mashed potato.... More

The restaurant has a fresh and modern look but still warm and cosy - albeit the temperature inside was anything but warm upon arrival. As far as Michelin starred restaurants go we were not convinced. Don't get me wrong the food was good but there were little mistakes everywhere. I had a slight variation on the usual tasting menu due... More

The owners and staff were friendly and helpful, though the more junior staff seemed intimidated by their roles. The atmosphere in the 'lounge' where canapes were served was somewhat stilted, but the ambience of the restaurant itself was relaxed and comfortable. The imaginative savoury courses were, without exception, so salt as to overwhelm the food flavours, but the grapefruit and... More

Wonderful ambience from the moment you enter. Decorated in neutral colours I immediately felt relaxed. A warm welcome by friendly staff. Food was excellent, a tasting menu. Two of us had the wine flight. The wines accompanied each course brilliantly however it would have been nice to have been told a little more about them. My only other criticism was... More

We stayed here this weekend and brought my parents for a treat. Had lovely rooms and a truly delightful weekend. The food is great and I can't recommend it enough. We had the taster menus for 2 nights and enjoyed everything. The food here is as good as anywhere I have eaten and considerably better value than where we live.

I visited this restaurant in a party of eight for a birthday celebration. The restaurant was busy on a Saturday evening with a lovely buzzy atmosphere. The decor is clean simple and modern promoting a bistro style ambience. Despite the full house of diners that evening, the service was excellent and very friendly. Attentive - but not fussy, as some... More

The food was wonderful and service good just not sure the tasting menu is for us as would probably prefer more choice of how many courses we wanted to order. It did seem strange that everyone was being serve at the same time, and eating the same meal. The restaurant decor was Ok but not that comfortable really.
