We ordered the meat platter, but what was on the platter was different to what was said in the menu. There was no lamb shank.

Very average meal. I was underwhelmed by the quality and the portion size. Over cooked lamb runny mushroom sauce etc. The service was also a little lacking. Overall a forgettable experience

All food was very good except for the pana cotta, which was so hard that it wouldn't wobble, no matter how hard you shook it. The service was very disappointing as well, forgetting one of our dishes, missing a request to remove an empty plate because the waiter pretty much ran off after dropping off a couple of dishes, and forgetting a request for water

I ordered the platter it was ordinary, steak and chicken average, too much blood sausage, and rib was chewy over priced, poor quality. On a positive the very small and well over priced steak my fellow diners order was cooked well. If it wasn't for the excellent service the night would have been a complete fail.

Food was pretty average. Not overly expensive but I would still expect more for the price. Service wasn't overly attentive, the only time I was asked if I wished to order a drink was on arrival. We were given a round of port shots on the house as we were there for a birthday which was a nice touch but wasn't really enough to make up for how ordinary the experience was.

I'm afraid I wasn't very happy with my meal at your restaurant. To pay $40 at lunch time for a tough steak accompanied by a pathetic little potato and a couple of veggies is not really good enough. The waitress was super attentive

All started with a bubbly front of house welcome and shown to our table. Once we sat down we asked for still water. Then our drinks order was taken. And finally our meal orders were taken. There were only 4 of us at the table. There were 4 other tables of customers. We had to ask for still water again. Our entrees arrived and we had to ask for our drinks which were 2 beers and 2 wines. They arrived 20 minutes after we’ve ordered. Finished with mains. When we went to pay our bill, we had to bring to their attention that they had a promotion where we order 2 courses we get a beer or wine complimentary. Overall food was good. But we weren’t impressed that with only 2 staff serving the lunch hour.

Went with a group of ladies on a cold windy night for dinner. - from the start of the booking/parking/service and food - we were all impressed. especially the deserts- every bite enjoyable and although we thought we might struggle to finish every last bite. All the plates were emptied. thank you

My wife & I decided to share the #meat&more platter and @ $48p/p were a little disappointed. Whilst the Backstrap, sticky spicy chicken and accompanying sides were quite good, the beef short rib had bone fragments throughout the bbq sauce it was coated in and the Pork Belly was really bad, dry and like what you'd expect when you reheat a pork roast from the fridge 4 days past it's original cook. We passed on the Black Pudding for personal reasons. The desserts we choose being the FR Tart & Panna Cotta, were both good. Service was very good and staff were attentive.
