From start to finish the food was awful. I ordered the healthy option of fish which came swimming in its own pool of oil and the smallest piece of fish I've ever had served to me but it did leave room for dessert which was supposed to be mousse, one spoonful in and it became a milkshake as it wasn't...

We had the afternoon tea, and the staff were so efficient with the service. They were especially very nice to my Japanese tourist companion, which I wholeheartedly appreciated. The presentation of the afternoon tea took my companion by sheer delight, the very reaction I had been hoping for! The scones, sandwiches, and cakes were delicious, I totally recommend an afternoon... More

The opening time on the front door said 10:00 breakfast and we got told to come back at 11:30 with no explanation. Only came back as we had a groupon voucher we wanted to use. We ordered two breakfasts which took quite a while as they looked to be understaffed. I noticed the chef wearing shorts and t shirt as... More

Who the hell appointed the front of house guy I shall never know and should of perhaps took heed with our first impressions. The food was mediocre, I selected the beef daube because it came... More

Honestly the worst restaraunt I've ever been to. Our waiter was the rudest person I have ever come across and was so rude he made us so uncomfortable to even complain about the food or even ask for sauce for the table! We had to ask the waiter can we order now as we were just left sitting there. There... More

A great evening with really good quality fine food. Service was a tad slow but they were at full capacity. Would recommend finding this place, but to book first, we were lucky.
