Simply amazing! This was a special treat for my parent's golden wedding anniversary anniversary. A trly wonderful experience from walking through the door to leaving. The food is sublime and James and the team are so attentive. Have already booked for a return visit.

Sensational! 13 courses, and only one that we did not think was sensational and that was very, very good indeed. I won’t say which one because it is all down to personal taste. Beautiful food. Great surroundings, lovely staff. Extremely talented chefs. Thank you all....More

Almost otherworldly dining experience. Lovely setting in a quiet village miles from anywhere. Warm welcome from attentive, but not overbearing staff. Tasting menu only option, but the waiter did ask if any of us had any issues with anything on the menu (we didn't). The...More

It was mixed really. Men in smart jeans and nice shirts, some in smart trousers. Ladies in nice dresses and heels, some ladies ladies dressed more casually. No suits in sight.

I was driving and my wife isn't a big drinker so we were a bit frugal drinkwise. We had a glass of champagne each, then she had a white by the glass for the early courses and we shared a 500ml carafe of red.
