Well the meal was superb and 100% on it's own BUT my father-in-law took a fall on his way to Tristans and the Front-of House manageress set able administering first-aid to his cuts and bleeding and she was FANTASTIC dealing with the situation so second 100% for service above the call of duty

It is always good to find an independent restaurant with a proper chef doing his stuff in the kitchen. This is a restaurant that you might not come across as it is not in the smartest part of town and the building and frontage are unpretentious. It is though well worth a visit. it has a small selection of starters... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants, a meal there has never disappointed. The front of house staff were friendly and attentive and the food was amazing (as always!). I had the sardines followed by the fillet steak and both were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The other meals looked and smelled very tasty too. Definitely worth a visit!

Staff are lovely and friendly. Meal was very nice and presented very well. Only downside was a missing component from all 3 of our meals that was brought out to us when we had nearly finished but it was all tasty
