Went at this restaurant with my wife. I enjoyed the local touch in particularly the Suffolk sourced vegetables, Scottish lam and scallops. Delicious. French waiter were very professional and good advisor for the combination with wines.

8 course tasting menu with their flight of wines, about £250 p/p. Wonderful food but difficult to give you the menu as it changes regularly.
