I first visited this restaurant because of a glowing review in the Observer - even though that had been 5 years earlier. It is still providing good food in a relaxed and friendly setting. One way in which I judge restaurants etc is what they...More

Table was booked for 6.30pm and as we were seated I noticed the restaurant was quite empty but it soon filled up. Staff were polite and service was fairly prompt. I had a burger and my husband had pork belly, followed by desserts. I was...More

We had a meal there last night (7th June 2017) and as we were the ones not paying, decided not to make a fuss there and then. However, this place is well past its heyday. It used to be fabulous years ago so we were...More

We booked here with a group of friends on a Saturday evening, and although the bar/waiting staff were all friendly and polite and the service was prompt - the person who appeared to be the supervisor/manager was shockingly rude for the entire evening. When we...More

Now be understanding here, I understand the illogical position of reviewing a veggie burger with a topping of crispy prosciutto but bear with me. I'm not keen on beefburgers, but veggie burgers can sometimes be a bit meh! I really fancied the veggie burger with...More

After seeing the notable mention in the Michelin guide and building up expectations, it was a bit of a disappointment having to wait 45 minutes from ordering to having food on the table, and then having 2 out of 3 dishes overcooked and none of...More

We visited this place for lunch on a Sunday afternoon, food was tasteless and boring, service was super slow, no apologies for such a long wait between courses, so annoying not having plates cleared! Staff were not attentive. We sat in restaurant next to bar...More
