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.

Booked here for Valentines evening with my partner. Pleasantly surprised to find a special menu, 3 courses for £30, which proved great value. The burrata starter in particular was sensational. All washed down with a large glass of Pinot noir. Highly recommend.

First course garlic and rosemary bread but had to advise waitress needed a dip very dry . Main meal was presented lovely unfortunately cold plates not heated...spoiled what should have been a nice meal. Overall a not to bad experience but would try elsewhere.More

Really disappointed with the welcome given by female server. From the minute we arrived she gave us the impression that we were not welcome. Everything was a problem from asking for a high chair to telling her we had a voucher to pay… (voucher monetary...which was a Christmas gift). Menus on website out of date. I specifically went on a Sunday as I liked the look of the Sunday lunch menu. When I asked the female server, she said they had not served this menu for over 2 years.. Again with an unfriendly manner. This female genuinely spoiled our little family day out with the way she made us feel. I have read another bad review about her too.. I’m not sure what her role is in this business but she needs to be aware that her attitude is not good and she should never make people feel the way she made us feel today. Otherwise the restaurant is lovely in a nice setting and the food was nice too. Shame about this female….More

Cannot recommend highly enough. We were looking for a private space to host a family dinner for a 60th wedding anniversary. From booking to dining everything was seamless. As this was during the busy Christmas period we were asked to pay a deposit and pre-order...our meals. This actually made it easier for everyone as instead of having to decide on menus on the night we could meet and chat on arrival knowing the restaurant had this in hand. We had the mezzanine level all to ourselves and although the restaurant was busy, the service was excellent. The meals were delicious. Extremely tasty and very well presented. 12 adults and one child and not one complaint. Businesses get a hard time if anything is not right so I feel they should also be recognised when they do it well, which Luci's really did. We will be back. Thank you Luci's 😊More

I booked this to take my Parents and my 2 year kid son on Christmas eve. When we arrived I was disappointed to be immediately told that if anyone wanted the 3 course lunch then everyone had to get it. We had two vegetarians for...which that menu didn't have much choice but my parents were keen on the festive menu. This caused alot of stressing and when asked further the wait staff didn't really give any explanation. We decided to all go for the festive menu so my parents could have what they want but I was disappointed as we wanted to pizzas. Instead we go camembert starter which had bread that was really really hard to eat and gnocchi which had butternut squash pieces that were a bit hard still. We really enjoyed the tiramisu dessert and my parents enjoyed the fillet steaks, although it came with only chips and no veg. I was a bit disappointed as we never been before and I took a risk booking it for Christmas eve meal. With that rules around the festive menu for the table as a vegetarian I wouldn't book again but might return to try a pizza on a less special occasion.More

Pre-Christmas lunch catch up with my friend. Warm welcome on arrival and friendly staff attended us throughout the meal. The restaurant was super cosy and beautifully decorated for the festive season. We ate from the lunch menu which is super value at £10 a head....Food was freshly cooked and delicious. Portions are large. We ordered sides which we didn’t need!! We’ll definitely return..More

Husband had garlic bread followed by chicken with veg. He said it was lovely. I had dessert,...popcorn panna cotta and the most amazing ice cream. Cocktails were lovely and the staff were amazing.
