I had a goat's cheese starter followed by some lovely fish cakes. Both were excellent, though if I'm completely honest I probably didn't need the chips with the main course.

We were here a couple of weeks ago as a largish party; I have eaten here before and had a thoroughly good meal with food wine and service all of a high standard. This time, the food was good though the portions especially the starter, were noticeably small ( a hint to restaurateurs- if you're going to serve two spoonfuls of risotto, don't try to hide it by using a fancy plate...). The main courses were good but the service was distinctly poor. We waited 45 minutes between the starters and the main courses, and would have waited longer if we hadn't prompted them. Even then, there was only a cursory apology, and we still waited another 10 minutes.
The wine was decent, and well priced but I thought that £50 a head for meal was not perticularly good value.

Visited 10-10-17 dined for 4 people timed at 7.45p.m. Restaurant was full but tables are well placed to accommodate the large number of diners when there. Staff were busy but attentive always on hand to top up the glasses. Food excellent both from prawn starter an scallop starter through the Rib eye steak and the salmon encroute all piping hot and delicious. Able to relay tables very quickly and can accommodate fairly large parties.
Very good wine list, a touch on the expensive side, but a great variety and would recommend this to all. Well done team

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we will return. The restaurant has a lovely relaxed feel to, not crammed in but not empty. the staff are very friendly and not characterless as in some establishments. The food is really good and served at the right time for a meal not rushing so that you can vacate quickly but not feeling that you have been forgotten.
Good time had by all
