The service was very good but the food was disappointing. The first course included a whole boiled broccoli sprig and a whole boiled new potatoe with a few Morecambe Bay shrimps and a sauce. It lacked finesse. We do not eat oysters, which were the...More

We had a very pleasant dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday. We could of had the degustation menu but chose to have the 3 course. The portions were not huge but by the end no-one wanted anymore. Good selection of wines at a reasonable price.
