The menu was a bit limited but something for everyone I thought even with 5-7 choices per course The pork belly was a bit tough but the chestnut purée ,and wild smoked vegetables were extremely tasty and well complimenting each other Definitely worth a visit

Came here for lunch with my family to celebrate after my graduation today. We were served by a lovely young lady (blonde hair) who took our order for drinks straight away. She was very efficient and friendly. The food was also delicious and very tasty....More

Not up the hype for me I’m afraid. Wine was good and service was ok - food was over prepared and toyed with. Too many add ons to simple dishes. Too much garlic in risotto that had been coated in a lashing of olive oil...More

Wasn't on the menu when we visited however as the menu changes and is seasonal it may well appear at some time. I'd give the restaurant a call to ask what they are currently offering.
