Our expectations were very high, sadly the food did not live up to them. Three of us ate there last week and all three main courses were not the perfection we were hoping for. The atmosphere/staff/complimentary whitebait/bread and coffee were all very good.

Food,service and attention to detail in the hand and flowers is amazing. Upon arrival we were asked if we had a reservation,upon giving our name straight away without looking at anything the lady wished us happy anniversary,little touches like this are so impressionable. When going into the restaurant part it seemed every member of staff welcomed us and a anniversary...

Visited on Easter Sunday. Atmosphere good. Service OK. Quality of food very good. I felt this was expensive and have had better meals elsewhere for the price. No extras such as additional courses i.e. Sorbet or, as it was Easter, some Chocolate eggs or similar. I would not rush back.

Personally, my experience in this restaurant was amazing. I have no complaints whatsoever regarding anything in this restaurant. When I ate here, I ate the pork meatball pie and a second course that consisted of a perfectly cooked piece of veal. The pie was seasoned very well, neither too excessive nor too bland. (Veal, as previously mentioned, was prepared to...

It just melts in your mouth and the parmesan us not overpowering the delicate fish. My wife had the duck parfait which was silky smooth melting like ice cream. For main my...

We booked well in advance for this 60th birthday celebration. We managed to secure a table for 2.30 pm but this worked out really well as we were travelling to Marlow and we were not hurried. I cannot think of anything negative to say. The food was fabulous, stunningly presented with a taste to match. The service and staff were...

Fabulous service and a pleasant laid back atmosphere make it thoroughly enjoyable but not at all stuffy. Food was excellent particularly the smoked haddock omelette which was absolutely delicious. We stayed at the lovely little cottage next door and breakafast was equally delicious and summed the place up - good old fry up and relaxing over the papers in a...

Living in Sussex I am very spoilt for vegetarian options. I am slowly learning that outside of Sussex vegetarian food isn't great. We came to celebrate my partners birthday, the place was lovely if not a bit cramped and dark even though it was such a lovely day. Nothing on the menu was particularly inspiring so I ordered the set...
