Not a brilliant experience. Lady on reception was on the phone when we arrived., that’s fine but can still acknowledge the customer. Tables far too close. Staff ok but not great. Food was enjoyed but too expensive. Wine was nice £27.00 I can buy very similar for £7.00 10% on the bill that’s a joke but yes I paid it. It’s so much nicer to be my choice. Will I go again sadly the answer is no. Not complaining just saying the truth. Not bad but not great Thank you

Amazing place for a meal, it’s a bit on the expensive side but worth it for a celebratory meal.

We've been here many times and love it. The last visit was a little disappointing in that all the diners were in a small part of the restaurant and it felt quite claustrophobic and the atmosphere wasn't as good. The food and wine were fabulous.
