Really enjoyed the whole experience of great food and good service. I would recommend that you book a table in advance and ask to be seated upstairs.

We were still on US time and hungry at 5pm, thus the only ones there. The wonderful conversation was more consuming that the food. And the food was excellent. I expected Italian but it was indescribable: ham hock terrine, mushroom risotto, pheasant, and lamb chump.

Fabulous food, went on recommendation, very pleased, not huge, we sat upstairs but the food was wonderful and not too bad price wise. We had scallops and langoustine for starters and roast beef and pheasant for main. Service was very good and friendly staff

Not sure for a set menu but when we went there it was very reasonable and dinner for 2 including wine was less than £80 from memory. If you call them I am sure they will tell you the prices. I hope this helps.
