Not a great start when you're the only table (of 6) on a Friday night...we were seated on an enormous table and it made it hard to chat to everyone. The massive market style flowers on the table needed to be moved as we couldn't see each other! Terrible lift-muzic in the background. The service was attentive and the menu looked awesome, if very expensive, but I was expecting an exceptional meal and couldn't wait to get ordering. Disappointed with the 'snacks' I had - pork cheeks were tough, dry and over-cooked and the whitebait was slightly soggy and not crispy. My main of halibut looked delicious, albeit a tiny portion of fish. The presentation of the food is excellent. However the fish was overcooked and dry the side it had been cooked on was like leather, - I scraped the meat off so I didn't have to chew through the dry side. The generous portion of leak fondue was so salty I couldn't eat it. A few of my fellow diners also found their meals too salty and we informed the waiter. The mash and beans were lovely. My dessert of pineapple and sorbet was very nice however we were not given forks so it was very hard to cut without it flying all over the plate. We asked for water and were given glasses and not a jug despite everyone emptying their glasses and asking for more (possibly due to the very salty food). It's a shame, I had high expectations, the restaurant is well designed, smart and comfortable, there is plenty of parking on site and the menu looks incredible (but expensive). If it had been any good I would have returned to try everything on it. It would have been the perfect venue for special occasions or treat, but I'm sad to say I won't be returning.
