We went for my wife’s birthday and weren’t disappointed. The service was outstanding, the atmosphere was great and the food was simply sensational. I am not a fan of duck and never have been but the duck meal was incredible.

The staff once they realised the occasion could not have been nicer. They all came to the table throughout our meal to share their memories and stories. The food was spectacular and the ambience could not have been better.

Excellent meal. Book in advance . The service was excellent, the food is wonderfully presented and tastes wonderful too. The staff are very well educated on which wine to choose with each dish. Will definitely revisit when my guests from Canada arrive.
