The restaurant was not very busy and consequently lacked atmosphere. Also the heat was not on so it wasn’t very warm. The food was good. Wine options by the glass also a bit limited. Service was great. Would give this place another go…think Covid restrictions...were a big factor in the lack of atmosphere.More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. I’ve been on a staycation for over a week and this is the best food I’ve had. Myself and my boyfriend shared risotto for starter and then I got lamb shank for mains and he got the Guinness pie....I can’t even describe how brilliant the food was. We also had chocolate cheesecake for dessert and even though we were so full it was so amazing we had to keep going. 10/10 service also. Our waiter was so nice and attentive. Would go back in a heartbeat.More

Great to be back. Excellent food, specially the starter goat cheese brulee which was heaven followed by superb sallads. Great service by the waiter Dave. Covid safe and highly recommended.

Out for a meal last night - first time in this restaurant. All Covid measures in place and we felt very comfortable. It wasn't busy which was unfortunate for them given how much it costs to run restaurants. The food was lovely, goats cheese brûlée...and prawns to start and sea bass and prawns as main courses. 2 desserts - chocolate fondant and icecream which were both lovely. Easy to figure out what was gluten free as the menu was marked. There was also a vegetarian/vegan menu. We would definitely go back again. Good value for money and really lovely food. Thanks for a lovely evening.More

A hidden gem - a doorway between to pubs - up the stairs and you find this hidden gem. Tastefully decorated - a quiet atmosphere. Good food and polite staff (and not too attentive!). Sadly my evening was spoiled by the group of 4 men...on the next but one table, whose language was choice! After about 10 minutes of this I asked them to curb their language as it wasn't fitting the surroundings. Luckily they left shortly after this.More
