Good food, nice setting and professional, friendly staff.
One of the best cheese boards I have had outside of France.
Will definitely go again.

“worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

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.

“well worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

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.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

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.
