“Good service and subtle surroundings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2011

After struggling to find this restaurant, situated within a hotel, we managed to park and settle down for a dinner. A warm welcome and we were seated quickly. The menu offers a good variety, with starters opted for being the cold meats and a salad, both which were very tasty.

The main courses we had were chicken breast and pizza, both delicious. We decided to give the desserts a miss due to the portion sizes being more than sufficient and the food quite rich.

The restaurant is very relaxing and the decor is modern, with the service being top notch, very personable and willing to assist in any matters.

The price is above average, with the steaks being massively overpriced, however a restaurant I'd recommend.

“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2011

I had not visited for a while and was very pleasantly surprised. They have really got their act together with good food ad wine and good service. Very varied menu made selection a challenge but all colleagues and clients were delighted with their choices.

“fantastic food cooked with love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2011

we have eaten here a few times and have been impressed with the quality of the food and with the service . The new menu is good, the pre starter of pork & crackling was done to perfection as was the mushroom soup or something like it .

The ravioli with duck was excellent .also the pig cheeks were tender in a velvety rich sauce.
the bream also was good . The sorbets & ice cream were lovey most made in the kitchen
and all tasted fantastic especially the mango sorbet & peanut butter ice cream.
It s so good to find a restaurant that can deliver Michelin stand ed food at reasonably good prices even the house wine is very good. The quality of the food & presentation, shows that the head chef & his team have the passion for cooking ,which is sadly missing in a lot of hotel restaurants . We will be back some time .....
p.c
