The food was generally good and some dishes, particularly the lobster and the puddings were excellent. The wine was more variable. The service was disappointing as it took a long time to clear empty plates and the timings of the dishes were erratic.

Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience. Excellent menu and wine options . Opted for the A la Carte rather than the taster menu. Food was beautifully cooked and presented . We spoke to a knowledgeable sommelier and chose a wine which complemented our food perfectly. Our waitresses explained our choices and were attentive in their service . So glad that we chose to come here to celebrate our special occasion.

We had a brilliant time, food was excellent, ambiance was spot on. Laid back, no rush perfect. The only thing to let the service down was the fact we had to go and ask for more drinks as, after sitting for nearly 30 minutes with empty glasses and no one asking if we’d like more, we had to go to the bar and ask!! Other than that it was perfect. Will will definitely be back.

What an experience !! Arrived at 8pm for a meal booked for my wife's birthday ,we both ordered the 9 course taster menu , food was fantastic , we weren't disappointed at all ,service 5* , thought the price was a little expensive for the food and especially the drinks , we weren't rushed at all having plenty of time to enjoy each course , if opting for 9 courses then allow 4 hours , a very enjoyable experience, thank you RJR

Wonderful evening at the “Chefs Table”, great food and great welcome. So interesting to watch you all work, so impressed with the skill, discipline and slick organisation enjoyed every moment. Anybody who considers themselves a “foodie” or enjoys cooking should experience this. Thanks

Visited for food and stayed for my partner's 30th birthday. Everyone was really engaging and informative about the food. Service was impeccable. I've recommended to several people already and can't wait to go back - thank you all.
