Brilliant meal just felt rushed. The whole meal was done within just over an hour.

The chef needs to learn to respect the customers opinion. A rare steak should not be delivered to the table cold and then tell the customer that’s how it is, if you want it warmer it will have to be cooked to medium. The waiter although sympathetic did touch my steak at the table and then I was expected to eat said steak. It spoiled what was meant to be our anniversary weekend. We also ordered dessert but after waiting 20 minutes this did not arrive, it was parfait so a very quick dessert to prep. We cancelled the dessert and left. The waiting staff felt to be hiding from us rather than dealing with the issue.

Disappointing meal, I chose the daube of beef which was served with a sauce which was far too rich and salty, because the mains seem to be served in shallow bowl like plates the mashed potatoes were just mush, the "carrot puree" was unidentifiable on the plate , I couldnt actually finish the dish because of this and told the waiter when he came to take the plates away. The dessert of carrot cake was also disappointing, bits of dry sponge containing no carrot, walnuts or sultanas, with bits of orange curd and cream cheese dotted over the plates, trying to "deconstruct" this type of cake didnt make it right in this case!, didnt eat much of this either and have had better carrot cakes from the supermarket. Overall disappointing experience on the Friday night, the description of "simple but stunning dishes created with passion and served with total attention to detail" didnt not apply to these two dishes at all Im afraid.

Halibut very good. Cured smoked salmon starter ridiculously small especially for a supplement although a tasty morsel! Service excellent. Merlot disappointing - no Shiraz which is poor. Desserts very tasty. 5th time at this place and will definitely return - just hope starters are bigger by then!

I always look forward to dining here as I enjoy the food. There is alway plenty for everyone to choose from but for me I always order the halibut, love this dish. I brought my whole family here to celebrate my birthday. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was a tad slow on this visit and we had to remind staff twice about a drinks order. Otherwise another lovely dining experience.
