All good, can't fault anything. Felt very reasurred about my dietary requirements, with the two young ladies who looked after us, checking with the kitchen each time I had a query. Thank you for singing happy birthday.

Food was lovely with the exception of the Main which was not as well executed as the other dishes. Unfortunately as a group we could not finish dish due to rice being hard in places and lack of seasoning to the Satay. Also one of group did not like peanuts and found the taste in the Satay too strong. Another issue was not enough spice or heat to the dish. There is not an opportunity to view the menu prior to visit to ensure no issues with it and no alternative dish on the night offered. So this was a bit of a let down. The chocolate expresso cake was delicious but lacked the hint of coffee as the name suggested. Would recommend to be served warm also, however as stated was still lovely. The remainder of the food was great, atmosphere was great and an overall good experience.

I cannot praise the meal we had highly enough. Perhaps the bread could have done with more salt but that's a personal preference and on the honey dessert the ginger gel was a taste too much. Service was excellent and we made a poimt of interacting with the students as we believe that the service should be friendly but professional. Name badges would be good! All told we were delighted.

You cancelled my booking 2.5 hours before we were due to arrive despite my having booked before Christmas!! as you were fully booked. I can’t therefore comment on your food or staff. I could comment on your administrative abilities- you won’t like it!!!!

A very pleasant experience all round. We were looked after very well and felt that we had a special treat. The food was very tasty and presented well-the only slight issue being the doughnuts were a little solid. Overall an excellent meal with polite, helpful staff and I will certainly come again. Well done everyone!

Amazing simply amazing! My partner is a military trained chef and he gave constructive feedback, but was simply blown away with the standards of food and the service We’ve rebooked for the Thai night and will be mostly regulars for our date night 😊

I asked for a square or round type seating arrangement for our party but got a long rectangular one instead. The menu was rather modern but okay. The quantities were too small.

We appreciated the welcoming mulled wine. Food quality excellent but portions for main course would have been minute if we had not asked for more. E.G One roast potato hardly seems an adequate portion. The waiters did not seem sure whether they were allowed to give more but we needed it. Service was polite and generally well done but why does gravy and sauce have to served by spoon when using a gravy boat and pourable bowl . It was too far for some waiters to reach and so there were several spillages. I heard the explanation that the students were being taught how to serve in the French style ; if so then they were not given suitable implements. The coffee was hot but very weak and poor taste. Mince pies were beautiful. We all had a good time.

Really nice atmosphere on arrival. Good to still find a restaurant serving 50 covers with linen table cloths and napkins in this day and age. Staff putting their training to good use. Good service all round with trainee chefs talking to diners and wanting feed back. First class.

The service on previous visits has been excellent but yesterday I felt it was somewhat chaotic. Perhaps the introduction of the Christmas menu was a contributing factor together with fewer students due to absenteeism. Let’s hope it all starts coming together over the next few days. Keep up the good work, see you again soon.
