“Fantastic Value”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Called in here yesterday and had the £25 offer which is anything on the menu plus a decent bottle of wine. Had been earlier in the day and noticed what a good wine list (available by the glass) there was. Food and service was excellent. My duck was a bit tough but everything else was perfect. Will definitely go back and perhaps try the sunday lunch next time.

“Birthday Dinner.”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Originally a wine cellar, so there are 3 arched dining areas, with soft lighting, soft music and perfectly placed tables and chairs. Waiting staff are happy, welcoming and they produce fabulous food at very reasonable prices. Bottle wine, dinner for 2 £25!!! Wonderful!!!
