Had a great dinner here with friends last week, something for everyone! Had the caramelised onion bread to start, so simple but sooo good! Service was amazing, we felt very welcome and the lovely girl that looked after us was very attentive and professional. We all had a different meal, I had chicken, the others had duck, lamb and fish,... More

Dined here for lunch with friends. We both had the Pan Seared Blue Cod Served On Smoked Salmon And Potato Croquette With A Lemon Riesling sauce. The Flavours and textures were very very good. Shame we didn't get to experience other parts of the menu. The service was efficient and friendly, the ambience was neat. Plenty of close free parking.... More

We went to dinner at Nero for a special occasion and were not disappointed at all. We were met with a warm welcome and given the choice of eating inside or outside. We opted for outside. The waitress, Amy, was brilliant at her job, friendly and knowledgeable. A bottle of Moet Champagne was great start to the evening. The Food....... More

Possibly one of the best meals I've ever had. The service and attention to detail was without question, faultless. Beautiful restaurant, incredible food, impeccable service. Perfect evening!

The joy starts as you step into the restaurant and view the eclectic surroundings. I was struggling with deciding between the chicken and beef......and went with the chicken, as suggested by our server. It could be described as the "best chicken ever!" There was obviously more there than chicken, but I will let you be surprised. Everyone in our group... More

When you go to a restaurant that advertises itself as high end you expect we'll trained staff and good service. Sadly this was not the case. Our Asian waiter was very difficult to understand and messed up our orders. He seemed to have no training in the hospitality industry what so ever, not knowing that order in which to serve.... More

Luckily we got the last booking New Years eve. The set menu was beautifully cooked and interesting, using food we wouldn't normally have had. Service was excellent as usual and it was impressive to have the chef come out and meet the diners. Highly recommended!
