A group of 4 for dinner, with two of us celebrating birthdays. We chose the tasting menu for our whole table, with matched wines. The quality of the food and the flavours were outstanding. Prices reflect the quality, so good value in my opinion.

Amazing food on the taster menu but needed larger drink measures and bread also needed a cocktail menu Service good but felt service charge was high for a table of 4 @ £75 each

Every mouthful of food tasted like the description on the menu, however, I would have liked more of a vegetarian choice, thanks

Surpassed all expectations. Would have liked more sauce on the plate (curries cauliflower with the cod cheeks) and juice with the pork belly, but small details. We loved it and will be back soon

Fantastic level of service & food. The Sea Breem was fantastic. Ambience was OK - lighting was strange - some tables dark some under bright spot lights. Overall a fab evening

The smallest portions ever. Thought it was a starter when it was served up. Very very disappointing as this is my favourite restaurant and I bring all visitors here for a treat. In fact due to come in two weeks time for a friends 50th wedding anniversary (there will be 7 of us) but wondering if the food and service will be any better. Considering going somewhere else now which is a shame. Not even an apology just our desserts given free which really didn't compensate. Very embarrassing as I had sung your praises to my friends.

I did think that maybe a selection of whole meal breads would be good for the table instead of 2 chucks of white.
