Celebrated the end of our honeymoon here and couldn’t have been happier. Beautiful food, cosy atmosphere and fantastic service. Thank you for a lovely meal.

We had been looking forward to revisiting the Bunker after a lovely meal same time last year
Both my wife and I selected the same items from the menu - and whilst I personally found the food quality to be ok (but not outstanding) my wife didn’t enjoy hers at all
It all felt a bit quick as well with starters out real fast and mains following very soon after...didn’t have a relaxed feel - we booked for 6 and were out before 7 having declined invitation to consider dessert options
Sorry but it was a poor overall experience

This restaurant serves absolutely gorgeous food in an intimate dining space with a log fire and a great upstairs bar.
We had scallops and the goats cheese fondue, followed by the beef and duck and then Pavlova NZ style ( a great desert with much less cream than its Australian version!)
The Waiter knew the wines to match.
Not cheap but worth a visit, especially if a romantic night out is the plan.

Sat outside up top with a big group of friends and had a wonderful time. Great selection of drinks and staff were very friendly. Good job guys/girls.

Tucked away in a little lane way this place did not disappoint. The open fireplace was just what we need to warm us up. The cocktails to start we're on point. Followed by an amazing menu. The Boar starter was so delicious. Could only be trumped by the amazing pork saltimbocca loin. But the rest of my guest were pretty happy with their dishes as well. Smiles all round. Great wine list and desserts too. Definitely recommend.
