Granny's birthday. 11 people. All happy by end of the afternoon. Best steak frites in the town. Small set menu but that guarantees quality. All food good and service friendly and timely. Check this place out. The set lunch is one of St. Albans' things to do.

We visited this restaurant on Sunday for a late lunch after reading all the good reviews. Excellent food and profesional service from the beginning until we finish. The Ribeye steak is on my list for my next visit. Dessert? All to die for... looking forward to see you again.

The main dining room is lovely, so we were not pleased when arriving early for Sunday lunch into a nearly empty room to be shown upstairs to a dark loft area almost entirely without windows. We asked to be moved which caused the manager to come and speak to us - defending her initial seating (even though we had booked... More

We came here for dinner and were well pleased. The kids had burger and chips. We started with celeriac soup and finished with venison for one and steak and chips. The steak was perfectly rare and truly delicious. Our waitress, Janine, was an absolute gem. She made sure we were all served food at the same time and was very... More

There were three is us in our lunch party and we all found it almost impossible to decide what to order - every dish on the menu was so tempting. The cod cheeks, linguine with rabbit and chorizo, smoked haddock with butter sauce, spicy Moroccan lamb and goat's cheese salad, sticky date pudding with clotted cream and Grand Marnier crème...

Went here on the recommendation of a colleague and it didn't disappoint. The mains (fish stew, and a special of venison goulash) were delicious, and sides were generous. Staff were also very attentive and personable. It feels like a much finer affair but when the bill comes (two mains, two sides and two soft drinks for £46) you're even happier... More

Tried to eat so not to spoil special evening, but gave up and when asked did tell the waiter it wasn't,t nice. He said he would pass comments to the chef, but did not offer a replacement. Fish main was edible, but tasteless,... More

A wonderful evening spent with my sister, niece and partner in this cosy restaurant. It was a Sunday evening, we went for the set menu which was unbelievably reasonable a 3 course meal for under £15! We enjoyed fish and risotto topped off with apple and ginger crumble- yum! Plus the red wine Merlot was delicious and well priced. The... More
