Still excellent, but lacked the greatness it once had. Service was OK, but again not up to the standards of a year or two ago. I'd still recommend but less fervently than before. 9/10 whereas a year ago it would have been a consistent 10/10.

We had a marvellous meal, imaginative and well presented. The chocolate textures and the treats rounded off an excellent meal where the service was delightful. It was good to see genuine pleasure and pride when we complimented them on the meal. We must try the mid-week set menu and sometime attempt the magnificent steaks that we saw other guests enjoying.

I had food envy when i came with friends before xmas so was overjoyed that the shin of beef was still on. It was scrummy and lovely presentation plus massive portion. Only downside is that acoustics arent great when full but early eve avoids the problem.

We are a group of 4 ladies that go out to celebrate our birthdays and have visited this restaurant quite a few times.

I visited here on an evening with a good friend. The food was faultless and the waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and wines. The restaurant is very small and cosy, but that didn't bother us. I had steak and it was cooked perfectly to my preference. Would definitely recommend.

We were a large group and so we ordered ahead, and the meals came out very efficiently! I was pleased that food was served on very warmed plates, and all ingredients looked vibrant and tasted very fresh. Everyone enjoyed their choices. Deserts are well considered, especially the chef's selection. I loved every morsel of the crumble, which had a lovely... More

I visited the restaurant for a lunchtime visit with my mum (when I booked the table by phone I had been asked whether it was for a special occasion and replied that it was her birthday but thought no more of it). They offer a three course set menu at lunchtime for £19.95. The meal was delicious, portions huge and... More

Excellent dinner, with a very good bottle of wine. Fine family restaurant. I had the beef fillet which was superb. Good atmosphere for a Tuesday night. Service first class.
