We had a very enjoyable family lunch. At little slow to serve starters and the coeliac bread was not great but they are very small complaints

Excellent food and service. Appetizer portions were a little small but excellent quality. Main of ribeye for two was v good and green beans were excellent. Only small complaint was we asked for coffee with desert but it arrived after we finished. Good wine selection.

Not what it was Service a long way below what’s needed Very limited menu, wine list also limited but steeply priced with few quality lower priced options Disappointing to see a lovely restaurant fall so much

We arrive for our 9:15 reservation and are told that the kitchen closes in 15 minutes. Okay, but what if we want to order cocktails? Well, you better hurry up! Then we decide to order 5 appetizers before our mains and the waitress brings two, saying the chef split them for us — when we explicitly told her the opposite. We asked for soup first and it was brought last. We wanted to order mains but our server was at the bar laughing and drinking with staff and we couldn’t get her attention. Food was superb but get the front of the house in order!

Cooking of fish excellent - super meal and wine. Please talk through dishes with staff so they are confident to describe ingredients; Also good that staff have knowledge of wine, we asked of dry white...didn’t know... Coffee machine not working... disappointing.
