We had to wait 15 minutes for our table despite a reservation. Staff were excellent but perhaps it should be clear that lunch doesn’t start until 1230

Group feedback as follows; Jyoti - I think menu needs to be reviewed again, not enough choice, better explanation of the food on the menu. The service had a personal touch, but a little bit slow. Steph - All very positive. Food was good quality, cooked well and presented well. Waiting staff were friendly and not too pushy. Did not feel rushed. My only negative, the menu is not that extensive. I was absolutely fine with my personal choice (salmon). I am happy eating most things. Although I did not choose steak if I had I may have wanted some veg. Ash/Michele/Sophia - We thought the choice was just right (too many options can be confusing) loved the Rib Eye Steak it was gorgeous!! Will be back soon :-) Good service, polite and engaging. Overall very enjoyable evening for use

Scallop starter a bit minimalist at 2 small scallops per portion! Also rather unnecessary "padding" in the form of croutons, bacon etc etc. Other dishes were excellent!

It was a bit loud, but only because of two large parties seated opposite us. That's normal in the run up to Christmas though!

Sunday dinner here is a must and dessert is a great way to finish up the meal. The only downside is the service. The staff would rather finish their conversations than serve tables, and you end up waving at them to get any attention. Shame, but I do always go back for the food

Everything was lovely, food here is great! The only slip up was when our waitress asked us if we'd like to see the dessert menu and although we said Yes, she never brought it to us. She completely forgot we'd asked to see it and it wasn't until she asked if there was anything else we needed that we reminded her we'd been waiting to see the dessert menu. By this point, the moment had passed and we just wanted to get the bill instead.

Hi, We had a slightly unfortunate experience with our waitress, which did really unsettle our evening. We had booked for 8.45 pm and i checked in at the bar just before this point and ordered some drinks as my wife was running slightly late. I made them aware of this. My wife arrived 7-8 minutes late and we went to sit down. We were rushed over to a table directly next to the kitchen, despite the restaurant being relatively quiet and there being other tables close by. As we were seated the waitress said we were going to have to be really quick and rushed off. When i called her back over to explain she said the kitchen was closed, in a condescending manner like she was doing us a favor by allowing us to sit down to eat, before rushing off again.It felt a bit like we were being punished. By this point i was happy to pay for our drinks and leave as we felt totally uncomfortable and a little bit annoyed. I decided to call the waitress over and explain that we were not happy by the way we had been treated and that we did not really want to stay. She did apologise and we decided to stay as we were hungry. As usual we had nice food but the whole evening was over shadowed by our initial experience on arriving and the awkwardness with the waitress. The waitress discounted one off our drinks without us asking ( to say sorry) and again apologised at the end of our meal. I get the impression she knew the service charge was going to be removed and would rather discount a glass of wine rather than lose a tip. All in all a bit of an awkward and disappointing experience which ruined our evening. On booking i was not told we would have to rush and as my wife was running slightly late i took steps to order drinks at the bar to speed the process as well as notifying the staff to the brief delay. I think sitting us in the kitchen and rushing us in a mildly rude fashion is not OK and this ruined our evening from the start. Really disappointing as we have eaten here regularly.

Thankyou for an amazing evening. It was our first time visiting after many recommendations. The service was perfect - friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The two people who served us were very professional and we never felt neglected even though they were obviously quite busy. Food was incredible, every dish we ordered was cooked perfectly and fantastic value for money (along with the lovely house wine!). Relaxing atmosphere too. Our new favourite place, will be back soon!
