Overall the food was indeed good, the main courses especially, though some dishes were a tad generic in terms of taste and one would' ve expected a bit of a twist to things. The starter soup was a bit of an aromatic-herb-overkill. With regard to...More

Thanks for your feedback. I don't agree with you but then atmosphere is as subjective as people's ideas about food!

This place is tiny and perfect. Great mix on the menu. I personally had the best meal ever! Mussels to start and the special fish of the day. I'm not even a huge fish person and it was spectacular

Thank you for your kind review. Really glad you liked the fish dish so much. It is delivered every night from Cornwall and it is fabulously fresh and we're very proud of its provenance and the way we cook it! Thanks again

Visited for lunch with friends (who have all been before) on their recommendation. Excellent food in a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Service also excellent - timely but not intrusive. Our experience certainly lived up to the reputation. Highly recommended.
