Service was slow however the staff were extremely busy, but also remained very pleasant and helpful. As our party was 8 people I was unable to book online, so had to call, however, it took 3 attempts when ringing to make the booking before the telephone was answered. We enjoyed our evening and will be back. Thank you.

We had been allocated a large table for our party of six, it was set on its own and was quiet private, it was excellent. The staff were very attentive, at one point my wife dropped her fork and there was a waiter over at our table with replacement cutlery before we even thought of calling him. the starters were super , the food in general was great , two of the party had ordered the Steak Sandwich. the meat was so tough even with a sharp steak knife it was extremely difficult to cut. Everything else on the plate was superb, the meat was even cooked perfectly. It was such a shame the cut of meat itself was so poor. I mentioned it when paying the bill and the waitress just nodded and said , yea thats rump they use for that... as if that made it ok ? i mean we just blew over £230 on a meal. Its not our first visit, and i'm sure it wont be our last, but we will just be careful not to order steaks.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch, three courses for £25 is very reasonable and so much choice. We enjoyed everything we had and the service was great. Will definitely be back.

We ate off the set Sunday lunch menu, which was excellent and substantial, so it was good to have the flexibility to have one,two,or three courses.

Loved the place first time we were there. Food was to die for and everyone enjoyed the experience from start to finish. This was the Second time we came and I had great hopes, my mum was visiting from a different country and I couldn't resist bringing her here as a perfect treat . Starters were delicious but my steak was served wrong. I had asked for medium well steak when I got it, it was still 'bloody' and pink, asked the waiter to cook it more. When I got the steak back it was missing a good piece of it and looked very chared, but behold when I cut into it once more it was still pink throughout.. Now I would think maybe chef doesn't know how to serve medium well steak but first time we came here I ordered it and it was perfection hence I got it again. Very disappointed this time around. Waitress was kind enough to ask if I want it cooked more again but by that time everyone else had eaten halfway through their mains so I just wanted to eat my dinner and not keep on waiting . She comped our dessert but have to say for a restauran with a Michelin recommendation you expect a chef to know how to cook a steak. Might need to think twice before returning.
