Spinach ricotta ravioli is the best ravioli I've ever had in my entire life. Including in Italy. I prefer it with the marinara sauce, though it's delicious with sage butter, too.

The ox-tail was the only element that let the meal down due to way too much gnocchi and the ox-tail did not fall off the bone as easily as expected

An absolute favourite of myself and my daughter for a catch up girls lunch. My 3year old grandson also a big fan of the homemade pasta and tomato sauce, followed by ice cream in a glass!! Staff delightful and so knowledgeable about the food and wine on offer.

I expected rather more than a bacon and tomato roll from the filled focaccia described on the Brunch menu. Waiting staff were pleasant however their practise could be improved upon. There were four of us around a square table - rather than them moving to each person to deliver the food, myself and my husband were leant over several times as plates were handed to our fellow diners instead of being placed in front of them. We waited ages for our bill and eventually had to ask for it a second time.
