I have to say that despite the service being seriously slow (we were booked for 8pm and actually got our food well after 9pm) the meal was delicious. I was surprised about the length of time it took us to be served as our food was all pre-ordered. The service was actually good once it started. I never expect too... More

Visited this restaurant a few times, I think that the chef must have a bit of a thing about Veggie food as the vegetarian choice is usually none existent. Its a shame really as the restaurant looks the part,

We were the only customers in the restaurant when we first arrived but it soon began to get busier. The tables were nicely spaced and I liked the proper napkins. The staff were professional, attentive and friendly. My cod loin was nicely presented and tasty. The sticky toffee pudding was a bit disappointing; not quite hot enough and no dates.... More

Eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. I had smoked haddock anancini and cod rarebit on a bed of creamy leeks,delicious! Presentation was excellent too! Service was good and our waiter Rory (who bore a striking resemblance to a famous funny person, won't say who ,make up your own mind) was also hilarious which was an added... More

We went on Sunday afternoon/evening with the intention of having a roast. Upon arrival it is slightly awkward entering the restaurant as there is no designated host/hostess so you just make your way in. Once in the service was excellent, we seemed to time it well and get the roast on the earlybird menu. The starters, mains and desserts were... More

Must be my 7th Fabulous meal here. Consistently great food and service, and no shame in having to have a 'meal for one', the only shame is not being able to share the experience with my Southern Based family :0( If you haven't tried it, do. If you're put off by a 'table for 1' don't be... Don't deprive yourself,... More

This is a great value restaurant if you take the fixed price two or three course set menu. £2.50 supplement for steak but even at £19.50 for three courses it was excellent value. It's pretty small and very busy at peak times. So book or face disappointment! Staff were friendly and attentive and although the interior is a bit clinical,... More

Been here a few times food is always beautiful fresh and tasty. Always have a good wine choice. Prices are a little more than some places in monton but worth it. Would recommend a nice romantic meal here without a doubt!

Booked on the day but they managed to squeeze us in giving us plenty of notice that they needed the table back for 5.30 which gave us plenty of time. We chose from the set menu which is great value for 3 courses. We all had steak which was cooked correctly to order and was delicious. The staff are very... More
