Food is served in the restaurant, cocktail bar, lounge or private gardens all complimented by a "more interesting than unusual" and very reasonable wine list, including the famous Frenchgate Wine Flights and finished with something from the well stocked cocktail bar.

“Imaginative dinner”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Portion sizes were just right. Service was just right too. We were neither hurried nor kept waiting. I loved the foie gras, the imaginative touches like olive jam on the dessert. It's really nice to have a meal that leaves you wondering how they were so clever.

“A lovely meal”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

Staff were really friendly and we very much enjoyed our meal here. Coming up from London I agree with what others have said - the food here was really top notch. Very well prepared, and a nice cosy intimate feel as there are only a few tables. We would definitely like to return sometime...

Choice of food excellent, first class service, friendly and warm atmosphere. Sampler foods sent by the chef were a real treat prior to our meal. Great value for money, so stuffed couldn't manage much for breakfast the next day x

“Very good food and service”
Reviewed 25 November 2011

We have visited this restaurant quite a few times since we moved to the area a year ago and each visit has been a wonderful experience. Having moved up from London it was great to find a restaurant with such good quality food and excellent service. The attention to detail with the presentation makes each dish special and we take our friends and family here when they visit. It is a lovely place to have a great lunch and then take a walk down to the river afterwards and I highly recommend it.
