A very good meal , reasonably priced (£45 for 5 courses plus canapes and pre starter). Excellent service even on a busy Wednesday night. Some innovative tastes.My husband loved the Marmite butter, not me, but then its something you love or hate.

Persistent rumours of a Michelin Star dog this restaurant, and it would be well deserved if recognised with the award. Persistent high standards and faultless, imaginative menus impress all who visit here. The taster menu of Kevin's signature dishes are highly recommended.

We visit the restaurant at least 3-4 times a year for celebrations ie birthday and achievements. But also for the great service from the team and the food and drink served in a special way. Thanks, see you all soon.
