Amazing food. Can't wait to go again. Such a shame with the current restrictions as it's all a bit rushed, but totally understandable. The ostrich steak is amazing.

Waitress was a lovely girl but not able to tell us about the flavours in some of the dishes as she had not tried them. No fault from her but would help recommendations and the customer’s decision.

Such a great Covid safe environment! We felt very safe on arrival, with Test & Trace, sanitiser freely available, and social distancing well organised. A very well run outfit indeed. The rest of my ratings speak for themselves. 5 star venue all day long!

Rating of 3 for atmosphere is due to limitations of Covid. Prices little on the high side. We enjoyed our experience and will be returning.

First visit here on our wedding anniversary. Had a delicious meal and the complimentary Prosecco to wish us a Happy Anniversary was a lovely and very welcome touch. Great menu and some really interesting dishes - the broccoli with chilli was to die for! Will definitely be back.
