Came for Valentine's Day. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. I would definitely recommend the Duck starter! Everything about our meal was just brilliant. The portions were perfectly sized and tasted gorgeous. The staff were all very professional and friendly. I would recommend this wonderful restaurant to friends!
