After driving past, seeing how lovely the restaurant looks from the outside & the brilliant trip advisors. Myself and my friend thought we would visit for Sunday lunch.

Nice & clean, friendly welcome from the waitress on the bar, sat us to our table. Good selection of drinks and Sunday lunch menu had a good selection also.
Drink order was taken promptly by the young lady who sat us down.

Now.. The food was yummy and a great price for a 3 course meal.

The big disappointment - other than how noisy it was in there, was the service from the staff (other than the lady on the bar). Stood chatting to friends at the bar, even turned to our table to take our order, interrupting our conversation and then carried on talking to her friend?!?! Starters and mains were served promptly and were lovely. Plates were cleared and we were asked if we wanted the dessert menu... We replied 'yes please' 20 mins later I had to ask at the bar for the menus and then 15 mins later we were asked if we were ready to order.
Sorry but this let the place down and to be honest I don't think I would return.

Took my Nan here for a lovely relaxing breakfast. Very welcoming. Not stuffy or over fussed service just relaxed and friendly. My breakfast was amazing and fair priced all in all. Would love to go back for lunch or dinner one day

Visited here for a family celebration.

Lovely Restaurant in the centre of Tamworth. Nice modern and inviting exterior. Inside was the same and gives you a feeling of being in a classy restaurant.

The service was very attentive and orders of drinks and food was taken in good time.

The food was excellent and could not fault it. Although may be a tad on the expensive side.

Would be somewhere id go on a special occasion but probably not regular due to the prices.

All in all a lovely modern a la carte restaurant.

Friendly staff, great food, great selection of drink, what more can you ask for. Used the restaurant for 2 weeks as I was staying in the Peel Hotel, all part of this establishment. As all food is cooked fresh be aware there may be a chance some foods may not be available, that being said the staff go out if their way to accommodate any requests you have for any particular accompaniments. Prices are very reasonable. Whilst this was a business trip I would not hesitate in revisiting with my wife if I was visiting the area.
