We know the new owners from the White Hart. We were excited to go but found a dis organised troubled bar. I know you can do it. Get some more staff and sort it out. We want to love you.

The current owners are keeping standards high to the very end; we had another fantastic meal. Looking forward to seeing what the new owners will do. Wishing them well, as this has been a wonderful restaurant for over 10 years now.
