We had a fabulous early bird here. We enjoyed the black pudding starter, steak + chicken. The staff were very attentive and catering for dietary requirements was not an issue. I would highly recommend, and will return in the future.

Food was amazing and enjoyed by the entire group, wine was beautiful. Cocktails were not up to scratch in my opinion. There was no sugar at all in the mojito! And other cocktails could be improved also. Otherwise we had a lovely meal and experience and will all be back again again! Thanks!

To be clear, this isn't a complaint. Just isn't sure if the bread was supposed to come to the table or needed to be ordered separately. Otherwise, excellent food and great presentation.

I have had two excellent meal experiences recently. One was with a group, of which some would consider themselves 'foodies' and they all loved the menu, presentation, the food and the service.
