Visited with my wife last Saturday night. Over priced, poorly presented and tasteless food. Seemed like the food was mostly prepared in advance. Decor is about 15 years out of date. Chairs are uncomfortable and not fit for purpose. Will not be back.....

Amazing food however felt a bit rushed. We arrived at 19:00 and had finished starter and main by 19:50. Knowing that they needed the table for 21:00. A bit more time between courses would have been nice.
