Lovely personal and friendly service, an extensive wine list and some really good local beers, but the food was the highlight. Fabulous flavours, delightful textures, neat and modern presentation. I'll go back!

A terrific special night restaurant. You are spoilt with the service and the quality of the food. I had the scallops and the steak and my friend the calamari and the duck breast. All were exceptionally good. I've recomended this place to other people.

Chris, Helen and Martin provide outstanding service at Tender Trap. The food, wine, ambience and service are first class. There is no other restaurant I would celebrate a special birthday at. Thank you.
