Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Second time here. Once again,staff lovely, attentive service and drinks not too expensive. Lady called Rosie was great and checked in on us, but without being over the top. Visited 12 April.

Fabulous food, wine and service. The team really knew their stuff on the cheese/ meat platters and wines, but not pretentious about it, just super helpful. We choose some and then left it up to them to decide the rest and we were very happy...with the selections. It was busy and great atmosphere but could still hear each other to chat. Presentation of the platter was awesome, with super breads, crackers snd salad bits too. Yum yum yumMore

Managed to get a last minute table on a Saturday evening. Great atmosphere and lovely welcome. Brilliant service from Shay who explained the wine flights aswell as the different cheese and meat options. The platter for 2 with some extra bread was more than enough...for 2 of us. A throughly lovely evening and would definitely return when we’re in the area of this location or one of their other sites.More

We have been here before and whilst we always enjoy our evening I always come away thinking I am just not sure it is really worth it. The cost for two and a bottle of wine is not cheap for what you are getting in...all honesty and I don’t really think the staff are delivering on the experience in terms of sharing knowledge about the cheese, meats and wines. The board with the cheeses on gives you the type of cheese and a name and then there are a list of other cheeses with no descriptions of them. Our waitress was not able to tell us anything about the cheeses and I over heard the table next ask the same questions and got the same answer from a different waitress. Maybe a booklet/info sheet like the wine list would be helpful for customers if the staff aren’t knowledgeable of the cheeses. Food tasted nice and baked Camembert was tasty and definitely a needed addition to our sharing board. We thought it was a nice evening but couldn’t help but think it was just a bit over priced and over rated for us personally.More

This place is really special - you have a selection of many unique cheeses and meats, allowing you to create your own charcuterie experience. The staff were so knowledgeable about the cheeses and the meats, especially accommodating with the latter given one of the party...didn't eat pork. When it came to wine selection, we also got a detailed explanation of the options and opted for one of each of white and red wine tastings - this is such an excellent offering, tiered for different price ranges, and allowed us to truly enjoy the best of the bunch! The place feels so private yet busy with people and communal - a truly memorable destination and an unforgettable experience.More
