Well, the atmosphere wasn't very romantic for Valentine's evening. We were sat at a table for 2 which were set out in rows with a small gap next to you. Really felt like was having dinner with another couple (strangers) the woman kept bursting out into song everytime she heard a track she new which was quite annoying. (Not the... More

Thank you for your recent review, we always appreciate any feed back given. Valentines evening was one to be booked well in advance as we are always very busy. The decision was made and clearly advertised not to provide a set valentines meal with a rip off valentines set price, hence the reason why we didn't provide the extras, like... More

My first time at this restaurant and was really looking forward to our valentines meal. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations at all. Ordered garlic mushrooms for starter and the pan fried halibut off the specials menu. The starter was more like mushroom soup (tasted very much like a well known brand) with a few mushrooms floating... More

It is our policy to refund any meal price if there is a problem with your food but as it was just down to your "personal taste" which is what you relayed to my waitress when she cleared your table and...

To often you dine there once and its great, and the next time it is rubbish. I will certainly try it again shortly. Also prices are very... More

I visited this restaurant some years ago and was pleasingly surprised at the new decor which gave it a modern vibe . The pack is mainly Italian in its concept and I have to be honest and feel it delivers The bar though small is adequate and has an excellent selection of wine and spirits with a large selection of...

I know that they have to be, but the service is very good. They are welcoming, very friendly and really attentive, without being overbearing. I hate the phrase "to die for" but the food is sublime. They are one of the few restaurants to actually offer to "doggie bag" any leftovers for you without having to ask, which I always... More
