“What a find!”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

Strolling along a quiet high street on a cold Thursday evening we chanced upon a winebar/bistro sign. Looking for a light snack before a 30 mile country journey home we were delighted to find this wonderful gem - food perfect - wine stored at correct temperature - the perfect place - just wish it were nearer home - Thank you Wendy and Alan!

“Brilliant Service”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Recently went here on two occasions one for an evening meal with some wine and the second for lunch. On both occasions 'Wendy and Alan's' Service was impeccable. I have previously visited the wine bar with my partner and we always get a service that is 'second to none'. If anyone who wants a relaxing evening I would highly recommend the wine bar 'as a place to be'! Don't pass it by go in you will be pleasantly surprised with the friendly and warm reception you will receive.

“Number 1 - and rightly so!!”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

Love it here - been a patron since they opened and so happy that it's here to stay. Wendy and Alan are polite and attentive and the food is wonderful. Good quality and excellent attention to detail. Private parties always warmly catered for and large servings. Well done you two, see you later!
