Sadly my reservation had to be cancelled, but the help and advice I got from the staff when I was trying to organize my booking was fantastic. Just a shame I couldn’t be there.

Great atmosphere in the restaurant and service is efficient (though quite impersonal). However, compared to my last visit a few years ago I would not rate the food for the price that is charged. Tempura crab was essentially deep fried (too heavy for tempura batter) and most of the sauces were very similar and quite heavy. The fish itself was cooked ok and mussels were nice but would have been nice to have some bread served alongside them. One of the most expensive meals I have had in a while and far from the best. To give them benefit of the doubt I wonder if this was due to a very busy night before lockdown.

not as great as usual I'm afraid. It was very busy and so the service was pretty bad. A lot of waitresses hovering but not very attentive and so we had to call a waiter/waitress over every time we wanted to order our food or drink.

My only negative is that my miso cod could have been hotter when it arrived to the table. Service was second to none, really very good. The seafood soup was to die for! Will definitely be returning

30th birthday celebrations! Amazing food and atmosphere, the service was really good. One waitress even took time out to take pictures of us at the end of the night. I would highly recommend and we will be returning after lockdown.

We were seated in the conservatory area. It didn't have the same ambiance as the main area. It was also quite cool, made colder by a self important man requesting the patio heater to be turned down. This same table were quite loud and complained about their food, causing the staff to rush around to placate them. Spoilt the atmosphere completely for us, especially as we were celebrating our birthdays. Food was plentiful and wonderful. Good menu choices. Staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Looking forward to returning.
