Been before. Great service and starters were beautiful. Lamb main course was very rare and we like rare. Quiet restaurant - surprising given Lincs Show was on. Not wow-ed as I have been before.

Excellent attention to detail, the staff were smart and efficient. The food was delicious, however, the cost of the starter and main course was expensive for what I received; I left feeling hungry!

Enjoyed a wonderful meal here on Friday 4th of May with my partner and in laws. I had the Baron Bigod tart and the sea bass and would throughly recommend both. Such a lovely atmosphere and fabulous service. Thank you for a lovely evening.
