We dined here last weekend and opted for the 5 course tasting menu. I've been before so knew what to expect, and I wasn't disappointed. Service was very attentive, the food sensational and we had a couple of cocktails to finish it off. We arrived...More

It was supposed to be a special dinner. Firstly they texted to say they'd cancelled our booking - why? No idea. We called and re-confirmed our booking. When we got there we discovered they had a private event in the dining room and we had...More

Dear ginger23_12 As you've pointed out, there was a private function in the restaurant that evening, that you should have been made aware of at the time of booking. We apologise this didn't happen and that you were seated within the private members' bar. By...More

I rarely assassinate, preferring to take up issues directly with the establishment. But this restaurant is resting on it's reviews and not on it's food. James, my vegetarian boyfriend booked it, being assured several times over the phone that he could indeed have the 7...More

Dear Emmalancs, We are disappointed to read this review, we never wish any guest to leave the restaurant unhappy. Food is very personal, and this obviously was not to your taste. It's regretful that none of your concerns were raised on the evening, as we...More
