20/10/20 keep coming back, new winter menu is lovely. Always the mark of a good restaurant when the staff know how good their food is. They didn’t have the particular steak that I wanted, but the alternative that was recommended was amazing, rare and had rested Properly before serving. Will be back and have found myself recommending

Covid precautions felt safe & secure without being overbearing or detract from the atmosphere of the evening.

Amazing food and drinks options - the best I’ve ever seen for any bottomless brunch. Service was slow due to being too busy but staff were very helpful. The decor needs updating to match the menu and atmosphere.

Was so lovely to have an afternoon out in a fun and inviting atmosphere whilst strick measures were in place to ensure everyones safety with the Covid 19 restrictions. The food was delicious and such value for money with the bottomless prosecco brunch. The staff were all such good fun and so accommodating. I have already recommended to friends and family to book here and will definitely return.

we tried the new menu and what a treat. I was the 1st person to order the Wild mushroom Ravioli with a sprinkling of black truffle in a butter sauce. SUPERB one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. It was sublime. The chef is to be complimented on a gastronomic creation.

The staff were super friendly, a bit too friendly as I saw a waiter hug a customer, surely not allowed at the moment? The food was lovely, we were looked after, I did think it was a bit pricey but tasted fresh which we love, overall 3 out of 5.

I've been several times and have always said how nice it was, this time I visited with friends who came from Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire to see if it really was as good as I said it was. We all had a great time - in their words 'food was amazing' 'would definitely return' the flake and malteser cheesecake was 'the best cheesecake they've ever had'. We will be back for sure!
