Popped in on several occasions during December, the 2 course fixed price menu is always good. Good choice if you want to avoid the usual 'chain' restaurants. Worth a walk up to the top of town if you are in the main shopping centre.

Enjoyed some nice food here on Saturday evening. Never been before, having failed to find anywhere half decent to eat in Basingstoke and didn't want to visit one of the usual "chains" in Festival Place. Good food, charming service, convenient to town centre, ample parking...More
