Attractive restaurant lit by candles at the end of an ally. Monkfish in cream sauce and Thai prawns followed by peach tart and apples in cinnamon washed down by house wine. All was excellent. Restaurant was nearly full by 8pm.

We enjoyed eating here so much that we returned twice. Staff are very friendly and evening customised the music in the restaurant for us. Their chocolate mouse is delicious and make sure to try the lamb with caramelised pear and carrot - very good

Went twice so far and was amazed both times! Definitely the best kitchen in town! Don't be shy on the desserts . . . they are worth the calories!
