Had a fabulous meal during restaurant week. Kerry our staff was really spot on and very friendly, welcoming and attentive.. Lush cocktails and good food.
Lovely meal. Food and the service was excellent
Fantastic lunch for a party of 14 guest
We had a really amazing experience and the food and service was fantastic!
My 4 friends and I had a great evening. We took advantage of the 50% off all food offer that’s available during January. The food was fantastic and great value for money. I’ve already recommended the restaurant to friends.
The night we went there was literally only us and one other couple there, which is sad because it is a lovely restaurant. The worst part about this was that we were then seated on the table next to them no more than one metre away. Not ideal. Also because there was so few people in there we found that we were bombarded with ‘how is everything’ comments. I’d say per course we were asked at least 4 times by different people. Which did get a bit annoying. The food was lovely, we went for mussels starter and then the sirloin/fillet for mains and cannot knock the food it was lovely. Besides being a bit too keen the staff were lovely though. Would probably go again.
Lovely service, great food, we had the venison sharing platter and we loved it.
This was our second visit to this gem of a bar/restaurant and like last time it was a great experience.
We visited for Christmas lunch and found the experience overall very pleasant. The menu was very good and the food was well prepared and presented however the 7 course menu I feel over extended the kitchen due to the lack of service staff on the floor. I felt that quite often that the food we received had been waiting for collection on the pass for longer than it should have. That said on delivery the servers were very cheerful about it. we didn't receive the second sorbet course and had to request coffee on 3 occasions before it was delivered. We had brought my mother in law for a treat and she wasn't happy with waiting (she never is)
Great atmosphere in restaurant. Food was 5* and great value for money. Kids welcome and their menu was excellent also. Staff very attentive and friendly.
Think it was too busy staff had wrong orders for our table we had to show our own booking menu to confirm we were right, starter wasn’t great most agreed main was fine We were there last year so a bit disappointed this year with food although can’t fault staff at all Think we had a few things that should have been communicated to staff prior to our arrival like we had extra funds for drinks no one knew about that, shame as we were really expecting same standard as previous year
Very good place, good stuff, good and kind service, atmosphere was great, we enjoyed very much! 1 remark: the burger was cooked well done and not medium... Pay attention for next time. Thanks
Food is really lovely! we will be back for sure.
New Year Eve, a busy night in the restaurant, and it showed. The service was excellent, the staff were great, but the chef, not so good. My steak was a quality piece of meat, but I asked for it medium rare, it was medium to well. They did offer a replacement, but I, foolishly, turned that down. My fault. The desert was also overcooked, chocolate fondant should have a runny centre, this was so overcooked it was just chocolate cake. It's a shame, we have eaten here seven times now, but this time did not inspire me to return. But again, great service from the staff.
Beautiful food, would definitely recommend!
We had a lovely meal on Christmas Day. Atmosphere was lovely and even though the staff were very busy they still took time to chat and service was excellent.
Lovely food but there was a fan blowing cold air above our table it was freezing unable to turn off did ruin our experience
Excellent service and wonderful food. We had requested a window table which we did not get due to availability. But everything was top class. The waiter went out of her way to ensure we received what we wanted. Commendable.
We had a lovely christmas afternoon tea. The whole team enjoyed it
Unfortunately, this was a very disappointing experience overall. We appreciate that this time of year is busy, however there were quite a few issues. The table was booked for 5pm for 10-12 people. The table was set up for us, but about 20 minutes after we'd been sat down, we were told that the booking was only for 6. I advised it definitely wasn't, otherwise why was the table for 12 already prepared for us? It turned out the person who took our order initially on 31st October had only scanned the first page of the menu. Given I'd received confirmation emails regarding 10-12 guests, this was a bit disappointing. Luckily, I'd taken a photo of our choices on my phone and emailed it to the restaurant, so we could get our meals. This resulted in the first of our courses being served after around an hour. The menu didn't make clear the ingredients. One of our number ordered the Tiger Prawn Risotto for their main, however it had Chorizo in it, which they couldn't eat, but is not listed as an ingredient on the menu, so she had to take a meal made for one of our party who could not make the meal. Another member of our group had a plate of food meant for another customer smashed next to her feet by a member of staff. This ended up covering her shoes, jacket and new dress, which she is having to get dry cleaned in the hope the bright yellow stain will come out. The three courses were not particularly great in terms of the portion sizes, certainly, the starter and mains were pretty meagre. Finally, there is an exorbitant service charge applied to the bill, around 20%. Overall, this was not the experience we expected.
A very pleasant Christmas Day lunch in a convivial atmosphere
