Good lunch deal. Good food and service. Wine a bit overpriced but that's not unusual

Had the set menu good variety to choose from however chicken cacciatore dish felt like the olives had just been thrown in at the last minute definitely not cooked on the sauce as I would have expected not very authentic otherwise ok fir a set meal

We booked to attend prior to a concert. We did choose the value menu. The starter we shared was fine. My main (salmon) was just “ok” the sauce served with the meal was too much and sickly. The chips were the best part of the meal. We shared a dessert and it was pleasant. However the service wasn’t anything special and my husband had to ask twice for a wine glass. You get what u pay for and what it says on the tin. Not sure I’d return.

Good food and drinks, the only thing I would say is that the chairs are in need of replacing, so uncomfortable to sit on

Really nice front of house, quite rustic and italian feeling. However, despite having booked 2 weeks prior (and the inside part of the restaurant having enough space to accomodate our table of two) - we were ushered through the main part of the restaurant to the conservatory at the back, where the atmosphere is very different, poor and detached from the lovely inside. The window had also been opened for presumably the whole day and was very cold and became quite uncomfortable.

Lovely sea bass, pleasant service. Pity we couldn’t sit outside (unless we ordered from the a la carte menu only) as it was so very hot. Glad the back door was open in the conservatory 😀

Regular choice for dinner, as usual service was spot on. Didn’t feel pressure to eat and leave the table, food was beautiful and brilliantly presented. Staff pleasant and nothing was too much effort

We had a lovely meal and the food was great especially the chocolate and caramel sundaes we had for dessert. I had ordered a rose wine and was given a red wine by mistake but it was exchanged without a problem. Would definitely go back again.
