Delightful lunch, no alcohol as due back to work, but staff were very attentive without being overpowering which is what I like.

Food was excellent, personal service was fantastic (a little slower than normal due to being very full pre-lockdown 2!). Slightly expensive for us to make regular visits, but for a nice occasion, it’s a fantastic restaurant.

Stunning food and service! The Muscadet wine was so crisp and delicious and complimented the food beautifully. I'll be spending lockdown 2 looking forward to dining there again. Thank you!
