Went here for my boyfriends birthday as part of a trip away and it did not disappoint! The restaurant had a very classy feel to it, staff were beyond polite and the food was unreal. At a first glance some of the combos on the...menu seemed a bit odd but we trusted them and it was phenomenal. I would go as far as to say this is one of the best places I have eaten, the meat was tender, scallops were perfectly cooked and the tomato started my boyfriend had was unreal. Who knew you could make tomatoes taste so amazing. Would absolutely recommend, it is on the more expensive side for food but worth every penny!More

I was really excited to eat here after seeing the menu but I was very disappointed. I’m not sure which ‘Michelin trained staff’ were there that night but after being sat down for precisely 15mins and receiving our cocktail order, i asked to keep the...wine menu to decide which I wanted to have with my food and we were quite bluntly reminded we only had two hours at the table. It’s made very clear prior to booking how long you have the table for and when we turned up the restaurant was empty anyway. I don’t need to be rushed 15mins after being sat down. One of our starters was lovely which was gnocchi, mine was chicken which was okay. Our mains were okay and same with dessert. I just really expected more to be honest. It had no atmosphere, one out of the three servers was friendly the other two had a strange attitude about them. I honestly wouldn’t bother there are better places to eat.More

8 of us went to this restaurant and were given a heated area outside. Food really exceptional and service very good. Treat yourself to a slightly more expensive but definitely worth it meal. Try the honeycomb bites with coffee to end meal.

My Wife & I enjoyed our evening meal together there. The surroundings/decor are of a very good standard. The staff were attentive throughout. The meal I enjoyed was a medium rare steak , with trimmings , cooked extremely well. My wife had sea bass- extremely...impressed. The restaurant was full throughout our time there, yet, the staff went seamlessly from one table to the next , & from what I could observe & hear ,serving all with the same level of courtesy & professionalism. A thoroughly enjoyable evening to celebrate an Anniversary. Interestingly enough, we did not advise them of the occasion, so the standard of service we felt had nothing to do with our Anniversary.. Well deserved commendation. Highly recommended.More

We ate here two nights both visits were exceptional for taste and staff attention. Felt very relaxed and the food was very tasty. The ilse of eight tomatoe dish was bursting with flavour. The main meals were all very tasty which were the lamb the...pork and the sirloin steak. The puddings were to die for especially the cookie with chocolate vegan ice cream. The pecan and maple syrup pie was also delicious together with there dish rolled in banana flakes. Will definitely being going back.More

Super restaurant with nice outdoor facilities. Staff were attentive and extremely professional. We were a party of 6 celebrating a 60th birthday and were looked after extremely well by all staff but Pedro and Jacob need a special mention. Food was just great with zero...complaints. Beef cheeks dish was super tasty.A small improvement would be two small cubes of potatoes, despite being tasty, just isn’t enough. Highly recommendMore
