We booked in advance and stayed overnight. The service was warm and welcoming. The cuisine captured nature and local ingredients. To dine here you need to be prepared for an adventure.

The 18 course evening tasting menu is quite an experience which was thoroughly enjoyed. From start to finish the service, food and atmosphere were excellent. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. It is very expensive but we knew that before we went.

Sorry, we did not look for one before going to the restaurant. From memory it was quite extensive with wines in four figures, but there is a good selection, I think we chose one in the £30's. Hope this helps.,
