Really wonderful evening. Beautifully prepared and presented food: imaginative menu but not the 'nouvelle' portions that are often associated with creative menus. The restaurant genuinely is dog-friendly and the staff were friendly, helpful and very professional. The tasting dessert menu for 2 is a must!

Excellent meal enjoyed by all four of us. My daughter - a vegan - said it was the best meal out she had ever had for choice and quality. Our roasts, especially the lamb, was superb.
