a special birthday and what a treat from the moment we walked through the door a smile and a great warm welcome that made us feel special. then the starter with flavours bursting in the mouth like a finely tuned orchestra in full flow,then the main my choice a simple fish by name but again an absolute joy and only sorry when it had all been consumed. so impressed was i that i selected my favourite special french wine which was the best choice to elevate the whole experience to the most fantastic evening i have had for a very long time a better experience than a taster menu at the ritz carlton in the grand cayman some years ago

Absolutely outstanding service and food. Special praise for Rhona and Natalie who were so polite and accommodating. Highly recommended.

The food was absolutely exceptional: beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The only problem was that we had to wait a very long time for it, but this was apparently because they had 'engineers in the kitchen' - not sure whether they were involved in the cooking! But I'm not prepared to mark them down for that partly because everyone has technical difficulties from time to time, partly because they were charming about letting us know and partly because we were with friends and didn't notice the time passing. [I wouldn't be so lenient were it to happen again!]
The only place I've been that rivals them on quality of food is Grafene in Manchester. Everybody really enjoyed their meal, Thanks.

Was given a voucher for afternoon tea at Xmas so went today with my husband. On arrival it looks like a nice enough restaurant, however afternoon tea is definately not one of their strong points. I had booked for afternoon tea so we didn't need to order when we first arrived. The tiered cake stand arrived about 15 minutes after we sat down and I was woefully disappointed by what was presented. Bottom tier was the usual 4 sandwiches each, mostly chicken based with a smoked salmon one. The middle tier was home to 4 of the smallest scones I've ever encountered and you'd be forgiven for mistaking them for biscuits the crusts were so thick. You did get plenty of cream and jam for them though which was a plus point. The top tier was the most disappointing overall - there were 4 tiny morsels of cake that we were expecyed to share between us, not even one of each morsel each! I asked the waitress, who was very pleasant it has to be said, that I've never had an afternoon tea where diners haven't had one of the top tiet cakes each but she sid that was how they did it? She did later come back with 4 more little morsels for us. Overall I can honestly say this is the most disappointing afternoon tea I've ever had. The main menu outside the place looks lovely, and would be somewhere we would probably choose based on that. However afternoon tea is most definately not their forte, and based on the price they would charge for what we had today, it certainly doesn't represent value for money at all.

Wonderful food, great service and excellent value. We had the set lunch menu which was fabulous as always. Highly recommend the beetroot cured salmon, sticky toffee pudding and peanut terrine.
