Visited for brunch on Easter Monday Service was great Lots on the menu to choose from - and as you could see others receiving their meals all looked good, making it difficult to decide what to have - so an excuse to return again soon! Plenty for veggies to choose from too. Lovely atmosphere in the restruant, friendly and relaxed.... More

Under new management? We have been coming to this restaurant for many years. Where is the former elegance? The food, from the bread to the main course to the desert, and also the drinks, were poor in execution and presentation. The meat was tasteless, the roast beef more like a single dried up piece of leathery steak. The deserts were... More

Just moved to the area so wanted to try this place as it had been recommended. We booked for brunch and it was reasonably busy even at 10:30, lovely menu choice - we had eggs benedict and avocado on toast, both were lovely. The service was very quick although we didn't feel rushed, and our waiter was very friendly and... More

We shared a delicious meal with beef cheek and sea bream for our main courses. Dessert was poached pear, hazelnut crumble with honeycomb ice cream and chocolate torte. Delicious. The attention to detail was second to none and the waiting staff very skilled and efficient.

Visited here one weekend evening with my partner. We were made aware of the time limit when booking and once there we were seated promptly. Staff are very attentive without being obtrusive and the food is beautifully presented, as you can see from the photos. We had the sticky pork belly and the fried duck egg to start, which were...
