Warm welcome but chilly sitting near constantly opening door to Street. Food more than acceptable with an interesting choice. Big play on specials but no prices offered. Drinks are the killer. Sparkling Italian champagne, not Prosecco, at £9.00 a glass not justified. Wine selection good but again highly priced. £200. For 4 x 2 course meals aaarrgghhh.!! You decide.

I'd heard wonderful things about this restaurant and finally got to visit for my sister's birthday, The staff were all absolutely charming and I loved the cosy interior and decor. As for the food, you could tell that the chef cooks with complete love and passion. I haven't had food this good in England for a long time. The menu... More

I visited here with a very special lady in my life as she had always wanted to visit. The food is not cheap but was exceptional so I would have to say it represented excellent value for money. I had the octopus starter which was simply fantastic and the steak was equally impressive. My girlfriend had the Pate and the... More

We had a birthday celebration meal for two. We were offered canapes on the house, there was a great choice, including specials. The food prices were around what you would expect to pay at any decent restaurant. However the drinks were really expensive. £4.95 for a 330ml bottle of lager and just shy of £30 for a bottle of the... More

Hi . thanks for choosing to dine with us recently and I'm glad to read that you enjoyed the food. However,if you fancy yourself as a restaurant reviewer, surely getting facts straight is something you should practice. £17.95 is what we charge for our entry wines ( is that what you call just shy of £30)? We don't sell prosecco... More

Attitude! What a disappointment! After we were shown to our table the waiter told us about the “specials” and the drinks on offer. Our mistake was not asking him to go over that again because his English was difficult to understand and if we’d heard that it was £60 for steak and chips we would have gone elsewhere. We were...
