We were a party of 6 that dined at the restaurant on Saturday 25th march. I had previously tried to ring and make a reservation but was told bookings couldn't be made after 7pm on a Friday and Saturday evening and as some of our party have children we needed a later booking so decided that some of us would...

I'm sorry if you found the wine list limited, we do work closely with our merchant to provide a varied list and change it every... More

Lots of choice, rather fancy food, some dishes I'm unsure what they are but flavoursome. Veg and potatoes cost extra. 2 mains, 2 deserts, 2 teas was £54. Nice to be served bottle of tap water for free.
