After many visits to this place in its original French guise, it was with some mixed feelings that we came here for lunch. Whilst Relais Bressan never rose to great heights, it was predictable with a loyal following. How would this English reincarnation fare? On...More

Staff were friendly when we arrived on a Tuesday night for dinner but unfortunately there was just nothing to rave about here. Meals were fine but needs a fire place or something to focus on during night dining when there is no view to look...More
