This is one of my favourite restaurants in the UK. It is such a happy place to go out to eat whether on my own or in bigger business groups. They make you feel special and the food is fabulous.

The calamari and speck starters were delicious. The waitress was charming and recommended a super wine. The sausage and lentil dish was really tasty and a great winter warmer. The linguini with crab was a bit shop on crab and chilli. We enjoed our evening and thanks for the 50% off!

Service is perfect, place is lovely and we have been a few Sat evenings, however, l always ask for 'no salt and no oil' but my food is always very salty. Not sure what to/not to ask for ..

We had a wonderful meal. Everything about is was excellent. The only reason I have given only 4 stars for value for money is because I thought the wine list was over-priced. The staff made our night as they were friendly and attentive. Special mention to Karen from Equador. I have already recommended you to friends at work, and we will definitely be back. Thank you.

Menu was quite limited for dinner a bit disappointed. I have been for breakfast and felt that was spot on. Won’t be rushing back in the evening.

We had a fabulous time with you on New Year's Eve. The food was beautiful and the staff very friendly. The birthday dessert for my partner was the icing on the cake. Thank you.

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived but we were shown to a table straight away.We were served with water but there seemed to be a disconnect between the floor staff and the bar staff and there was significant waiting time between ordering a drink and it being served - this was the same for glasses of wine as well. We were disappointed that after ordering we were told that 2 of the dishes were unavailable .... perhaps this should have been done before ordering? We were compensated with the Affogatos not being placed on the bill which was a nice touch. The food we received was all of a good standard and the servers were pleasant and interacted appropriately. In terms of value for money, I feel it was a little on the expensive side, with it approaching almost £50 per head for what was essentially a 2 course lunch with 2 of us having an ice cream.

A perfect hogmanay evening - the food and atmosphere were awesome and as it doubled as one of our party's birthday the pavlova birthday cake was fantastic. The arrangements prior and the evening itself were perfect. Thanks so much
