A beautiful.restaurant. A great place to visit for any occasion. Staff were so very pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. Nothing was to much trouble. We visited for a friend's birthday and she was made to feel special, which was so lovely even us asking to add a personalised tag to our bottle of bubbles. Would highly recommend. Food was spectacular.

The online booking didn’t work correctly. I was almost sure I selected “up stairs dining” - however when we arrived our table was downstairs, the email confirmation I had didn’t show what I had booked so I could t even check. Down stairs was exteamly noisey and the table we were sat next to had children sitting with their feet up on the table, knew it was casual dining - didn’t realise it meant that! Luckily the staff were able to sit us up stairs where the atmosphere was more of what we were expecting. All the food tasted amazing and was perfectly cooked, although the hake was supposed to come with crab, however that night we were told it would be coming with “prawns” we each received 1 prawn, so that was slightly misleading! Overall delicious food just a couple imperfections!

Visited for a birthday meal while away with my girlfriend for the night. The food was excellent and enjoyed the atmosphere in the upstairs restaurant. The staff were professional and friendly and made the night special. We especially enjoyed learning about all the Gins after the food in the cocktail bar downstairs. I would recommend to anyone who fancies nice cocktails even if not eating! Would certainly go again and hope the bar takes off as I’m sure it will with the staff and atmosphere.

Sad to say, the service is unprofessional, slow, disorganised. This maybe not helped by a kitchen problem ?. However the food was excellent. Ps the menu lacks a logical progression.

Setting wasn't appropriate for a la carte dining (stools in the corner of the bar area). Not enough menu's for each customer. Atmosphere not great and slightly awkward. Charged for extra drinks mistakenly. Also a few minor things like flies, and slight mistake with drink and food order. Not what we expected.

Lovely food. A rare occasion for us to be able to go out alone as my Mother-in-Law was able to look after our daughter! We loved it!

We had a wonderful meal with you. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff did a great job of sorting out a complicated bill. We appreciated the complimentary chocolates as it was my parents' anniversary. The background music was a little loud for my liking, as it can make life difficult for those with hearing loss. Otherwise the meal was perfect. Many thanks.

This is my second visit and it confirms my first impression. The food is really delicious. It is a true pleasure to enjoy excellent meals in a nice and relaxing atmosphere. The service is great, the staff is very nice and I especially enjoyed the warm welcome of the highly knowlegeable waitress Helen, who made my visits even more enjoyable. I'll come back for sure ! Keep on the good work !

Another really good meal. Our guests raved about the Ribeye steaks which they said were perfectly cooked to their requirements. We had the Hake and it was also perfect. Only one small, maybe fussy complaint (which is important to us as we spend a lot of time in Italy & Switzerland) was that the espresso coffee was terrible. weak & British. Investment in a simple £60 Nespresso m/c with good pods would produce after dinner coffees that are much more acceptable. But thanks again for turning up trumps with the food.

Lovely food. Upstairs restaurant lacked atmosphere with old fashioned tables and chairs not befitting the rest of the place that was beautiful and cool in its decoration with lots of lovely original features. Staff were friendly. Starters were very small but incredibly tasty.

Skate was absolutely delicious. Gin tasting, inspired! Such a good idea. Bread would be nice served as standard with starter/main. Chips gorgeous. Will be back soon.
