Food, venue and staff are A Cut Above. We were met with a small carefully chosen menu in a welcoming space with great quirky artwork and wait for it - a sorbet palate cleanser. Maybe this is what "heaven" feels like. Perfect, but not stiff upper lip.

My husband took me to The Grill Room for my birthday on 21 January 2017. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the service was exceptional. We had the Three-Course Dining Experience and would recommend this as the food was out of this world. Thank you to all the staff for making my birthday very special.

Great service from Charity. Starter trolley was something different and allows for you to try a number of different starters/tastes. For mains we had Duck and Fillet, both were delicious. We will be back hopefully soon!
