Nice food, good service, lots of buzz and pleasant decor. Wine not great ...A bit bitter. Salmon tian starter was too small...Needed something else with it. Beef featherblade and dauphinoise Were delicious! Worth a visit.

Four friends met for a birthday meal at this little restaurant. Two were already there when the other two arrived. Walked in the door and immediately felt a great atmosphere, so friendly and cosy feel to the place. The staff were so helpful and as one of our band said 'charming'.

We got a voucher for afternoon tea from our granddaughters for Christmas. What a delight. We went there on Thursday 23rd Feb and were amazed at the choice of sandwiches cakes etc. There was so much of it that we took cakes home with us. The service was excellent to. Could not fault it.

I have been a great fan of DT, as since opening it has offered an imaginative, fine dining menu at reasonable prices. I hadn't been since it had been redecorated so was looking forward to going for lunch. However I was really disappointed to see the menu has gone really mainstream.

Was there for Xmas dinner and had a great meal. Busy place and service was good. No complaints probably need to return to get a sense of the usual menu

We chose D'Arcy's as it was close by and we hadn't tried it yet. The menu was quite small but perfectly adequate for the place and had something for everyone's taste. Better a small menu cooked well than a large menu cooked badly we figured. The lovely chap who served us gave us a table and another lovely young lady... More

Excellent lunch. We both had the fish pie and it was absolutely amazing and very reasonably priced. Lovely setting to chill with a few drinks. I would definitely recommend and I hope to visit again.
