This is one of my favourite restaurants, a meal there has never disappointed. The front of house staff were friendly and attentive and the food was amazing (as always!). I had the sardines followed by the fillet steak and both were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The other meals looked and smelled very tasty too. Definitely worth a visit!

We visited this restaurant for the first time and had a fabulous meal. The attention to detail on quality and presentation of all of the food was First Class. Lovely friendly atmosphere and very reasonably priced with the mid-week Special. (only £16 for two courses). Nice variety of wines with something to suit all and every occasion.

Excellent service and a very tasty meal in a bistro style restaurant. Not the largest menu by any means but there is the opportunity to pay a fixed price for a two course menu. The chicken dish I chose was delicious.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed you meal. We have a tiny kitchen and all the food is cooked from fresh so unfortunately we have no room for a larger menu, However it does change on a monthly basis so its not the same each time. Hope to see you again Georgie and Ashley More

Visited last night, 30/9/16, Excellent service for Coeliacs from knowledgable waiting staff. Really nice to visit a restaurant where the choice of starters and main course were the majority of the menu. Enjoyed the Trio of Fish to start followed by the Lamb Steak and had room for a Creme Brûlée. Good value as didn't know when booked but two... More

We went in the back room, which is superb for groups and the food was out of this world. The wine was fabulous too and we had the perfect amount of interaction from the staff. I love getting here early and sitting at the bar first - and there's a lovely range or wine, cider and cocktails. I'd eat here... More
