We ate around 9 on a Saturday evening - booked but probably not the best time. Service was variable - not enough menus to go round, three staff who varied greatly in their warmth and willingness and a very slow process even in bringing water to the table. It seemed as if we were something of a nuisance, to be... More

A lovely, friendly restaurant with first rate food. Staff were efficient and cheerful. We enjoyed the venison, the pigeon and partridge combination and the crab. Everything was fresh and wonderfully presented. A great little find in the heart of Cirencester. Recommended.

I'm going to stick my neck out here, and say this was one of the best meals I've ever eaten. We eat out a lot, and am happy to say that my Cornish Hake with a lobster and saffron mash and buerre noisette was sublime. So perfect in fact that we asked to send our thanks to chef, only to... More

Lunch time busy, but not a long wait for takeaway Cheese burger very nice made with great beef we also had sweet potato fries crispy with a great seasoning. We had jacket potatoes one with cheese (mature and tasty) and one with prawn cocktail. Very reasonably priced

We we wandering round Cirencester and came upon this place by chance, so popped in to give it a try. Our reactions are mixed. One the one hand, the quality of food we had on the 2 or 3 course short lunch menu was good (though the cheese soufflé was a bit over floury IMHO), and by the look of... More

Good interesting modern British food at a reasonable price and wine selection to match. Worth a detour or a drive if you are staying anywhere close.

What a great 30th birthday dinner! Lovely all round. Food was delicious and they catered for my mum who requires a gluten free diet. If i was being really picky the breaded venison leg 'bonbon' was a touch dry but other than that tiny point everything was delicious and the service was fantastic. Would definitely recommend and will definitely go... More
