I really want to keep this place a secret as afraid it's going to get so popular we won't get a table next time. We've eaten here twice recently, once for a birthday meal and second time as a couple for evening meal and on both occasions it has been on a par to any Michelin starred eatery. Run by... More

Each dish was cleverly put together, with multiple ingredients without being... More

Cannot doubt their food - beautifully presented and tasted define. Only 1 point to make and that is about the decor and the layout of the restaurant - needs bringing up to date.

Book whenever you can, and go. The cooking is inventive and first class, service charming, prices very fair. Three of us had different starters, mains and puds and all nine dishes were total triumphs. My father in law and wife are not mugs and not easily impressed foodies but thought that this was outstanding.

I took a couple of friends for a thank you celebratory lunch. A simply delicious meal with wonderfully attentive, yet unobtrusive, service. We will return. Thank you.
