We phoned for a reservation on Saturday morning for a table that evening for 2 people for about 8pm. Were asked to come at 7.45 as they had a large booking in at 8pm. Fair enough. Got there on time to find a completely empty restaurant. Food ordered and starters came within five minutes. Okay ish. My salmon tartare was totally cooked and all I could taste was capers. Not at all unpleasant but... Husband's starter was good. Mains....I had lamb which was good but potato that came with it poor. My husband had wood pigeon which was ok. Breast good but rest over cooked. Puddings....I had seen on the internet that all were priced the same and as a cheese lover was so pleased that this was not a higher price. Cheese was ok but nothing amazing. Husband's was fine. I was surprised to discover on the bill that the cheese was £3 more than stated and when queried was informed this was a misprint on the internet. Bit disappointed. Staff were very nice but when asked to remind us what the wine was we had paired with a course gave us the answer of....'the one that it said was paired with on the menu'. Not their fault but it all came across of as a bit amateurish. I suppose I was a bit wrong footed from the start faced with an empty restaurant having been asked to come earlier but I do feel that to bill
yourself as a restaurant specialising pairing wine with food it should be better than someone telling us 'I'm sorry, I don't know much about wine'. Feel a bit bad about this as the staff were really lovely but to complain on the night would have felt like kicking a puppy. They were so sweet but seemed a bit out of their depth.
