The food was heavenly. Wine flight was also great but would have liked a little more information about each wine. Sommelier information was a little hit and miss. A special and lovely evening and would recommend!

Lovely taster menu with excellent presentation. We took the wine pairing and were a little disappointed not to get more wine explanation. The food was delicious and nice wines but not sure they were worth an extra £40 each.
