Visited on a busy Monday evening and enjoyed some nice food with friendly and fun service Main complaint was that the service though was very slow - especially earlier on in the evening Drinks service was also very slow And another thing - they tried to add a 10% service charge , and were definitely reluctant to remove it when...

Have drunk in here many times but never had the pleasure of dining until now. We were totally amazed with the food, superb, stunning flavours served by the most attentive staff (especially Alex). The carpaccio was amazing as was the chicken livers. Followed by the king prawn risotto, but it must be said that smoked salmon pasta was out of... More

Everyone left with a smile on their faces, service was great, food was to die for, I recommend the 8 hour lamb shank to EVERYONE, just fell off the bone, succulent and packed full of flavour. So glad I tried this place, couldn't fault anything, will 100% go again.
