Great atmosphere, excellent smoked salmon and charcuterie boards Long chat with Louis. He always makes time to welcome everyone. A bit noisy downstairs - kitchen clatter and David moving bottles around. Otherwise, the best in town.

Lovely wine! Really well priced and nice cheese platters. Loved the choice of cheese and the staff were really accommodating. We also bought some wine to take home and they were very knowledgeable. Would definitely go there again!

A great evening out, great service, food and wine. More subtle lighting upstairs would help.

My only criticism is that upstairs is very echoey and loud even when there are only a few people in , this could be sorted with a few soft furnishings to soften the sound.

Great concept perfectly delivered but could improve by offering an alcohol free beer option.

I enjoyed having lunch here - we sat outside - everything was excellent, the cheese and charcuterie was delicious and good value, the service was helpful and prompt, and the autumn sun made it feel as though we were on holiday. I will return!

It was my second time to visit here and I loved it. The selection of wines are brilliant (although I wasn’t drinking!), the cappuccino was fantastic, and there were lots of people socially distanced and enjoying their evening at the other tables. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Loved the hand sanitiser!
