My husband and I went here for dinner after booking 6 months in advance to get a Saturday night during August. The welcome was great and we were invited to have a drink in the bar. The menus came to us and the taster menu was detailed but as a "surprise" without any details at all of what the courses would contain. My husband convinced me to go with it but I must admit to being slightly nervous about ordering a £130 a head set menu including matching wine without having a clue what would be put in front of me. The result was some courses that I really enjoyed but others which I wouldn't have wanted if I'd known what to expect. I appreciate that the restaurant likes to use seasonal produce but it does feel like they make all the decisions and you are expected to be grateful to be a part of it. One of my courses came up and unfortunately there was a hair baked into the food. The waiter immediately whisked it away and replaced it with a new course about 10 minutes later but by then my husband had finished his. I did expect an apology or a gesture on the bill at the end of the night but there wasn't even an acknowledgement. Overall I was disappointed - the food was beautifully presented and well cooked as you would expect, but at £300 for two people I wanted special and it wasn't that. We have eaten at other restaurants of a comparable standard and left feeling overwhelmed and already planning our next visit - sadly this was quite the opposite.
