We had a very nice three course meal here. Just over £50 for the two of us. The food was lovely. I especially loved the berry crumble. The decor is beautiful and the staff very attentive. We will be back.

Visited on the Thursday before Christmas with an old friend. Experience was perfect - from food, to service and cocktails. The hardest part was choosing what to have - everything looked so good. Went for the mussels - which were delicious, and then the lamb...More
