Came here twice for two birthdays as we enjoyed the experience so much the first time round. Food and drink both great and service was lovely, just on the right side of attentive but not overbearing. Food very reasonably priced. Not much choice for vegetarians but staff were happy to substitute the meat in the dishes for something else, which... More

Enjoyed a nice Birthday treat here in Jan. It's the first time I've been here and will definitely go again. The food was excellent, and so was my Vodka Fizz Cocktail.

Not eaten here before, we arrived and were seated promptly, was fairly busy, the lady who seated us seemed like she was the manager, was courteous and knew what she was doing, meal was a 4 course affair, we both really enjoyed the food, was enough considering the courses were quite rich. we both had different dishes and the venison...

Such an amazing evening with friends with amazing service, food and drinks - thank you to all the staff! We had drinks at the bar before dining on the set menu in the restaurant. The food was delicious and lived up to expectations (and beyond!) Excellent value for money and perfect setting for a special occasion, or just a nice... More

I booked afternoon tea for my mum and myself due to HN's reputation, as I thought it would be one of the best. On arrival we were greeted at the cloak room and then served some nice cocktails in the bar. When we decided to go into the restaurant, we were left waiting at the cloakroom and eventually seated. On... More

The service was superb and the food really good. I'd definitely recommend for dinner and would particularly mention the potato pie with steak, it's small but tasty.

My friend and I came here for afternoon tea on Sunday and were both thoroughly disappointed. We sat there for half an hour before the stand of sandwiches and cakes came out and then waited another 15 minuted before having to ask if we might be able to have some tea to go with them. It then took another 15... More

Fantastic meal - really varied flavours beautifully and interestingly put together. Every mouthful was a treat. The surroundings are sumptuous and very comfortable and the acoustics are perfect as no hard surfaces. The main course (lamb) was one of the finest I've had and rivalled some of the best restaurants in Paris. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will... More

Lovely atmosphere and surroundings. Very attentive waitress- especially for my dairy intolerance. Food was delicious! My only gripe is that drinks are expensive. £4 for a bottle of water for the table, £32 for a bottle of prosecco.
