This restaurant had been highly recommended by friends so our expectations were very high. Our dinner here exceeded all our expectations. Extremely friendly and efficient staff and exceptionally good food. Definitely worth the trip from Nottingham and we'll certainly come back.

Outstanding in every respect. Excellent choices and the food is presented beautifully and to a very high standard. A real bonus are the extra tasters between courses and the range of homemade breads offered. The house red wine was very good and everyone in our group thought the food was fantastic. The waitresses were obviously proud of the food they... More

We decided to go for the 8 course tasting menu and every course was delicious. In fact as we had... More

I loved that we were ushered outside the restaurant whilst waiting for our table. There we were served some pre dinner bites and our drinks. I enjoyed the food, very well plated too.

I was treated to Saturday night dinner, having previously been for lunch we had high expectations which were exceeded. On booking my boyfriend had mentioned me being vegetarian and not eating goats cheese. As they took our drinks order they listed several non menu selections I could pick from which was great and made it difficult to choose! Pre starter,... More
