I definitely have a new favourite... Went to Tristan's last night (had booked) was greeted nicely upon arrival, drinks were served promptly with friendly service, adjustments to the menu were explained with care, each of our three courses arrived at the right time and the food was divine. Throughout the evening our needs were addressed quickly and efficiently, all wait... More

It is always good to find an independent restaurant with a proper chef doing his stuff in the kitchen. This is a restaurant that you might not come across as it is not in the smartest part of town and the building and frontage are unpretentious. It is though well worth a visit. it has a small selection of starters... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants, a meal there has never disappointed. The front of house staff were friendly and attentive and the food was amazing (as always!). I had the sardines followed by the fillet steak and both were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The other meals looked and smelled very tasty too. Definitely worth a visit!
