Delicious meal as always, lovely to feel a little bit of normality whilst knowing that everything had been done to make it perfectly safe.

Cocktails were delicious as was the food. It was quite quiet as we were there early after a day shopping. Waitress was great and attentive. Only quibble was the £24 steak. Tasted delicious but was very expensive for that and only a few chips without the option of additional vegetables or a choice of salad included in the cost. The other 3 meals were cheaper and more filling.

I hate to say but we were disappointed! The starters were actually nice but the Brie bites were just served on a tiny saucer with no side salad, I had the Sea Bass for my main and it was a VERY small portion! The bass was a small fillet cut into 3 bite sized pieces and there were 6 small dice sized pieces of potato. It was tasty but wouldn’t have filled my 4 year old. My wife had the red pepper tagliatelle which had almost no flavour. Such a shame as we hadn’t been out for a long time and were looking forward to a nice meal but left hungry and dissatisfied.

found the whole evening a pleasure and the staff are a credit to your restaurant. During these awful times we have only ventured out a couple of times and your restaurant was the only one we felt really comfortable in. WELL DONE.

We had a lovely meal, however a waiting staff dropped two pints of beer and covered to two guys in our group.

Service was very slow. Took us one hour to get a main course which was a shame. We were also sat right in the doorway and it was freezing! Food was amazing though, so perhaps worth the wait.
