This is the 2nd time we've eaten here, and we return as we were blown away with the brilliant and imaginative cooking last time.

As before we had the tasting menu. The food was brilliantly cooked and very tasty. The staff were helpful, knowledge and efficient. But something about the experience this time was missing. We were in a side room instead of the main restaurant so the atmosphere was lacking. The food felt a bit formulaic, like the kitchen was just going through the motions - and for the money I expected to be blown away as we were the first.

Don't get me wrong, the cooking and food is excellent and every morsels delicious. If you have never eaten here before, and want fine dining then don't hesitate - just book it.

I went to the restaurant with friends. Great atmosphere, nice relaxing service. The service was extremely good the choice of food and drink was also very good. We decided to have the seven course tasting menu with wine paring. There was are extra lobster dish available so we had that too. First class meal and service, thank you to all those involved

My mum took me here for my birthday and we enjoyed a fabulous 5 course tasting menu.

The staff were attentive and knowledgable about the food being served. The wine list is extensive and has some great gems.

The food...DELICIOUS! The presentation...BEAUTIFUL!

I cannot wait to come again.

Thank you for making my birthday so special.

Booked the private dining area for a business lunch of 16 guests and was blown away by the food. I had several e-mails with the management beforehand and we put together a bespoke 7 course tasting menu and the results were outstanding.
Each course was delicious, packed with flavour and the service second to none. Expensive, yes but worth it, without question.
Thank you to all the team for making our event that bit extra special!

We went for my Wife’s 50th Birthday lunch , we had the 5 course taster . It was amazing . From start to finish a taste sensation . We added the cheese coarse which is a must . The service was so good , we were made to feel very special . A very modern but Classy Restuarant, very worthy of it Michelin star ⭐️.
Thank you to all staff especially the maitre D , he was so friendly .
Lunch deal is so worth every penny .
