We’ve been here a few times and find the standards to be consistently high. Good solid quality of food and service without fuss. Lunchtime Prix Fixe menu is good value. Provender is always a solid choice so highly recommended.

Everything was exquisitely presented with great taste combinations. I chose the beautiful asparagus salad, followed by the most tender lamb, then I couldn't resist their dark chocolate tart with goldleaf. Attentive service; fabulous drinks; it was a real joy to dine there. Go on, book...More
