The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant. There is a small outside area for drinks or coffee. The lunch was excellent and well presented.

We were welcomed into a classic English house and chose from a very tempting menu. We all chose different dishes and they were all delicious and perfectly cooked. Service was excellent. Highly recommended!

No Sunday lunch option and I'm afraid most definitely not a restaurant to visit with a 2 month old baby.

I am not quite sure what the question is. This is, indeed, a 'posh' restaurant where a lunchtime menu is offered, and also a dining menu. I cannot speak for the dining menu, not having experienced it yet. The lunchtime... More
