Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It's been a while since I've been here but it was just a nice as I remember. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food. My friend and I ordered the 3 dishes offer along with a couple of extra dishes. Beautifully presented and delicious. We...found it just enough to share between the two of us. We would definitely go back again.More

First time at this restaurant despite living so close. Very Impressed. We attended a tasting menu event and we' were so impressed. My husband and I have allergies and the staff went out of their way to accommodate these allergies. The food was of such...a high standard and the staff are so friendly and helpful. We will certainly go back. Highly recommended.More

What a lovely place! Came in last night and will definitely be back, Alex and Georgia couldn't have been more attentive! The food was delicious and I especially enjoyed the prawn and chorizo pasta, it's a shame the 3 for £18 deal isn't available all...week but we really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back soon!More

Well this was a lucky find. Only staying 1 night in Southport but always Google or TripAdvisor for a well recommended place to eat when we travel. This was a great place, food very tasty, well served and lovely staff. Took the £18 offer but...with 3 of us it was plenty to eat with 9 dishes. Thanks for a good experienceMore

Came with family to try the new brunch menu and we were all very impressed. We ordered the pancakes, the croque Madame and the truffle and mushroom eggs plus a side of potato hash. All were very tasty & service great. Would definitely go again...for the brunch menu.More

We had a lovely Valentines night here. Live music with lovely food and great service. The sea bass risotto was our favourite and the profiterole dessert was a fantastic treat to finish the meal. We couldn’t fault any of our choices, throughly enjoyed our evening.

Service was fantastic, such a homely feeling to the restaurant and great atmosphere. Service was fast and food absolutely spot on. Came with my family and were all raving about the food. Will definitely be returning especially for their Sunday Roasts.

Counter service as late booking. Rather cramped. The small plate service is unsatisfactory and confusing. Long gap between courses and left feeling unsatisfied as opposed to a one full plate meal. The “flowing” of small plates didn’t occur as promised. Nice decor and tasty (small)...food but won’t be returning.More

I have eaten here many times before but unfortunately the standard of service has declined dramatically. I went here 3rd of Feb with my wife and daughter. Our main courses arrived at least 5 minutes apart so we effectively ate separately. Food was really nice...but service was appalling. Won't be going again.More
