Price range: US$52 - US$78

The a la carte menu promises seasonal Modern British and European dishes such as Seared diver scallops served on a herb spaghetti with sauce vierge whist for main course enjoy Seared filet of Scotch beef served with asparagus and a braised oxtail charlotte or grilled John Dory filet on a bed of spinach and brown shrimp butter and what could be more perfect than Vanilla panna cotta with warm strawberries and cracked black pepper to complete the perfect meal.

Good selection on menu. Enjoyed the delicious pea soup. The slow roast chicken breast was succulent and tasty. The staff provided good friendly service.

“Visit 07 June 2013 used Tastecard”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

No A la Carte menu; set menu for either two or three courses, plenty of supplements e.g. bread, steaks, vegetables, sauces etc. No bread rolls or crusty bread with soup even with a supplement. My asparagus with crispy bacon, came with parma ham instead in the shape of crispy bacon, dish returned and came back with tiny chunks of bacon, why didn't they just say they had no bacon? I did not like the rock hard tasteless asparagus (one of my favourite starters) so did not eat it. The rib eye steak (for which there was a supplement of £3 which was not shown on the online Menu) was so chewy I could not eat it (sinew?). Steaks were cooked perfectly. The Manager agreed with my comments but said he could not refund the meal as we had the Tastecard. I asked him to deduct the cost of the wine £26+ (£7+ in the supermarket) and he agreed to this. With all the extras this was not a cheap meal even on the Tastecard and bearing in mind this is a 1 Rosette restaurant, I certainly expected a much higher standard. The romance of the meal soon disappeared as we were joined by some very persistent flies. I would have said the Service was "good" but there is no option for this so I went for "average"
