Beautiful from start to finish. We had crab lasagne & pumpkin tortellini to start, brisket & delicious partridge, goats cheese panacotta & chocolate fondant to finish. Superb service, knowledgeable wine advice. Perfect table, great service, attentive but not fussy. Definitely will visit again

My husband and I went earlier in the year. I had a fish dish which was very dry and needed a sauce. I thought it was a little pretentious. The service was good. It was okay overall but wont be rushing back.More
