We did the 3 courses and enjoyed every one of it. Incredible sea-bass, great dessert. The atmosphere is great, great staff. The only problem is it gets too loud in the evening when is crowded.

Very romantic setting, great winter specials. Staff friendly and efficient. You need to pre-book as seating is limited. Cannot return to sit outside when it is warmer.

Had a great evening at this unique restaurant. It is in a beautiful old Tudor style house, log fires in every room. Fireplaces were outstanding examples of the period when the house was built. Food was superb - three menu options- a la carte, 3...More
