Having known about this place for a very long time but did not have a chance to visit because it is quite far away, I finally got my chance, just as the restaurant received their second star too. Service was very good, staff were very polite but does have to occasional chat. Just the right amount of interaction. We didn't... More

Absolutely amazing, top notch food and service, highly recommend. Every course 5 star and really enjoyed the sweets, especially as I'm not a pudding type of person. Give it a shot, you won't be let down!

This was an anniversary present from our son and his partner. Couldn't have had a better present. The whole experience was wonderful. Front of house staff were very chatty, helpful and friendly. The meal was mind blowing a whole new experience of different flavours. I was not looking forward to the beef tartar. It was beautiful. The pigeon was very... More

My gorgeous husband took me for lunch today and what a treat!! The staff were brilliant, the tasting menu was out of this world and the place is lovely. From the first course to the last was a sublime taste journey. How the chefs managed to create such incredible flavours is pure magic. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

What an absolute treat. From the initial greeting to the final goodbyes we were treated with friendliness, efficiency and above all the greatest enthusiasm. The waiter & waitresses knowledge of the food was wonderful to experience. So......great staff, now for the food. Without being patronising, for those who haven't had a taster menu before, then it is not something you... More

This restaurant is perfection itself, every morsel was a taste experience and a work of art. The staff were excellent and well trained and there was a lovely atmosphere. Well done James.

Just amazing. Not cheap but well worth it and would definitely return. Every dish was good and combinations you wouldn't think of but of course they worked perfectly.

Birthday treat and was blown away by genius dishes that leave lasting impressions. The food and service must be sampled by all. Not to highlight where this place has got it right - but to show where others have got it wrong! Nothing I've sampled elsewhere comes close. No pun intended.

I visited here some time ago and had the taster menu. It was a taste explosion which left a memory on my taste buds for weeks. I had food I would never of dream of and it was delicious. I like my cheese and the selection they had was fantastic. They had rooms attached when I ate there which you... More
