Christmas lunch with work. Very busy, but attentive, friendly and professional service. Three course lunch with lots of choices. Had oysters, land tartare and ribs. All cooked to perfection, beautifully plated and interesting flavours.

We loved the service, the food, the atmosphere and the views - cannot rate this restaurant high enough. Our waiter Reece was so knowledgable and looked after us beautifully. I would encourage everyone to go to this restaurant for themselves.
