“A superb fine dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014 via mobile

A warm welcome as always. The menu has. Hanged and always has seasonal dishes to choose from. Food is extremely well presented and delicious we had the salmon and pigs head followed by lamb and beef. The combinations of jus and accompaniments were good. Many fine wines to choose from as well. Service was extremely good - very attentive but not too much. A beautiful setting tucked away and a hidden gem in Bedford.

“A summer visit in August”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Arrived at 7:30 while still sunny, enjoyed pre-dinner drinks in the wonderful garden, if warm enough dinner could have been taken alfresco. Dinner was delightful with friendly and happy staff, perhaps this is why we keep coming back time after time.

“Good, not great but I will go back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

My first visit did not quite deliver my expectations of something a bit special or those of our friends who have been several times before. The setting and ambiance are lovely and the owner is very charming but we were somewhat disappointed with the menu which has changed with a new chef. The service was efficient and courteous and the food was tasty, well cooked and presented with care - and there was very little left on our plates! I liked the fixed price menu and there was a good choice of reasonably priced wines which meant the evenings was not outrageously expensive. Definitely worth another visit.

“Just outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

I was taken out for a memorable birthday date (!) to this up market fine dining restaurant for the first time. Wow I was in no way disappointed. The food was fantastic and the service and ambience outstanding. There is a lovely garden for pre dinner drinks which made a nice entree. Thank you and I look forward to the next visit. If is nice to be made to feel so welcome.
