We booked a 5 course menu and were blown away by how good each of the dishes were. Our favourite dish was the cauliflower 3 ways. Service was absolutely top notch from the second we arrived. Would definitely recommend 5*

I think the menu is the same all day. It is very limited - but for a reason, so that they can supply top, fresh ingredients. We booked for 3:30 p.m. as we were going out in the evening. Nice leisurely meal, that felt really... More
