No very fine dining tasting menu
I would like to book a table for 4 on Wednesday 29th March 2017. It is my husband's 65th birthday. The opening hours state 7:00 to 8:30. Surely one needs more than an hour and a half to enjoy the evening, or is this just the start time for the evening dinner? Also, could we please have the prices for the various tasting menus as well as the wine pairings. Many thanks.

That's the start time. Depending on your menu choice, the meal will be 2 to 4 hours. Check their website for prices
