Joined some friends here for dinner on a Sunday evening. Restaurant was busy. Staff were relaxed but helpful. Menu - small plates a good option if you aren't too hungry and like me want to try a few different things.

I had an early dinner so not a huge amount of people eating dinner. Tables spread apart so some privacy was good I also had breakfast delivered the night... More

We returned here a year later because we had so enjoyed our meal time. Sadly this time it was just ok and nothing outstanding. The onion tart for starters was tasty and went down well. The scallops were ok and served on a hot stone that was only just warm so lost it's effect. Three of the group had Sirloin... More

We celebrated a friend's birthday at this amazing restaurant and it was very special indeed. The staff had been informed about my vegetarian preferences and they came up with options. The hazelnut dukkah for starters with the bread was outstanding. the meal was to die for. Highly recommend it.

Thanks for looking after us we had a wonderfully night and super meal! Was down south on a trip for my 45th birthday and recommended this restaurant by locals, being that I train staff in hospitality for a living in the UK they don't like to send me places so I figured it must be good and was not disappointed....
