Visited this restaurant for the first time on a very hot Saturday evening.
We started with drinks outside before moving on to our table inside. The service was good, little slow to start but picked up.
Food was excellent, most of our group had different fish dishes and all really enjoyed.
After desert, when the terrace had emptied we moved back outside to have drinks and coffee on a very comfy sofa!
Will be returning and strongly recommend to others!

Met with friends for a meal before a party. Interior is nice and modern and clean. Staff all friendly. Had a drink before our meal so it was nice to to feel rushed. The waiter also knew his stuff about Gin - which was great.

Menu isn't huge but we all found something tasty. I had burger and chips which where absolutely lovely. Chips where V. tasty and the burger meat was tasty and tender. Nice work. Will be back.

Our new seasonal summer menu has just launched with lots of new seasonal dishes and a slightly larger menu too means there's plenty of choice.

Just a quick review to say that I went for lunch yesterday with one of my good friends and tried the new summer menu.
We were lucky enough to sit outside in the gorgeous space and had fantastic service and my sea bass was out of this world!
I will be back. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Thank you for your wonderful review, yes, nothing beats alfresco dining or drinks in the sunshine. Having such a large south face terrace really is fantastic, especially when we are enjoying such amazing weather. We hope to see you again soon.
