Visited this restaurant recently. Colin great host and the meal was excellent. We chose a great wine to accompany our meal which surprisingly was from Somerset; fantastic wine that we purchased 4 bottles to take home. Had a wonderful afternoon. Thank you.

We had a great meal at the English wine centre last night, the food was delicious and presented beautifully, the wine was also delicious and especially loved the fact it was all English wine, and the staff were great - very knowledgable. Would definitely recommend!
