Had a wonderful yet reasonable 4 course meal (only offered early and late post 9:00 pm) including perfectly prepared lamp chops and a heavenly toffee pudding but what really stood out was the exquisite service. Best service experience in the last 5 years hands down!...More

We stopped for dessert around 830 on a Saturday night. Christian and the staff were great and never made us feel uncomfortable for "just having dessert". Loved the sticky toffee bread pudding and we'd order again and ask for extra yummy topping!
