My Skate Wing was delicious, very thick (1.5 ins/2 cm) on a bed of wilted spinach and celeriac, covered with a topping of capers. Very succulent. Delcious. My wife enjoyed her lamb. Good service. Argentinian Vognier was good value and flavoursome.

Have enjoyed dinner here on a Sunday evening (booking advisable) and I can only say that we will return as it was absolutely delicious. Veggie options were given by the chef so no having to choose from a boring selection, often the case. As for...More
