Chose this restaurent over our hotel restaurent which was quite a brave choice.

Very much a french restaurent. Starter choice was limited and one dimensional.I am normally a big fan of starters and was very disapointed. I wish i had skipped starters. Main course was VERY good in a fancy cheffy way. Desert was excellant and wifey says the best ever (quite an accolade). i am not normally big on desert. Cheese board was A1 (french cheese). Wine list excellant in terms of choices in both price and variety.
Service was only ok. Prices were expensive but expected.

My husband & I ate here for our 1st anniversary & were very impressed. The food was beautifully presented and tasted just as good as it looked! We both had 3 courses, coffee & a bottle of wine & it was just over £150 and worth every penny. The staff were very friendly & attentive & we will definitely be going back.

Enjoyed a sumptuous meal here today. Lovely variety of flavours and textures in each dish. The pork literally 'melted in the mouth'. All food cooked impeccably, including all the veg. Extensive wine list. Very attentive service. Reasonably priced. Will definitely return.

This is the second time we have visited and the quality remains very high. Excellent tasting food in a lovely setting. The only thing it needs to hit the 5th star is slightly larger portions. I know it is usual for most High quality restaraunts to have small but tasty portions but the quality leaves you wanting just that little bit more.
