Our mother’s day lunch was very good. Service was excellent, food was amazing! When my 10 year old niece stated she didn’t like her chicken strips the staff were very attentive and responded well to her. I would highly recommend the tandoori chicken skewer. Only don’t fall was that my mum said her pudding was too small! Haha

We were seated on the balcony area with a toddler near stairs, this wasn't wise to me and we needed to ask to be moved as the toddler didn't like it up there. The children's meal of chicken, the batter didn't look to have been cooked long and when I tasted a bit it was rather chewy. Our desert of red velvet cheesecake was a bit disappointing, the red velvet part was heavy and dense nothing like I was expecting. It was a treat and we know it's more expensive than some places and do expect excellent food. The staff were fantastic as we did arrive early and they were able to accommodate us. Even when we moved they brought us our drinks down and kept checking the toddler was ok afterwards.

The service was excellent , however food was adequate and very small portions for the price ... even though I ate of the two course special , the watermelon salad had two pieces of watermelon , tandoori chicken was very bland in fact tasted like a jar sauce

On the evening of 14th Feb., service was not as smooth as expected. Drinks took too long to be served to the table and there was a rather long wait between starter and main course. Main course (fillet steak) requested was not available and kitchen was unable to supply sauce requested to accompany steak (bearnaise).

Food wasn’t good had to send main courses back because rice wasn’t cooked it was solid. Mains were re cooked and on second time they were not good again and couldn’t eat them. It’s a shame nice restaurant but when they employ chiefs that can’t cook rice !! Totally spoiled our night
