Very professional service, attention to detail and cleanliness. The food was gorgeous, the Penang curry especially tasty and the desserts. Drinks served promptly, totally enjoyable and relaxing, well done all round.

It’s been a couple of years since I last visited here and back then it was excellent. This time around I can’t help but feel the restaurant has lost some of it’s charm, and so has the food. The tables looked tired and are so...scratched, they really need a refresh! The service was really slow, even for a restaurant that was only 25% full at best and the food was just about average (the Crème Br?lée I ordered hadn’t even set and was still pretty much a liquid) and it all felt overpriced when there are much nicer places in the city centre which are cheaper. Whether it was just an ‘off day’ I don’t know!More

Ten of us dined for a 30th birthday meal. Paul took care of us and was very efficient, friendly and attentive. Sadly we only have main courses each (I would have happily had all three courses but you tend to go with the group rather...than eat a starter alone and delay everyone else eating). The special main course (scallop risotto) was exceptionally good - I normally loathe risotto, far too heavy and 'clumpy' but it was surprisingly light and I ate it all, along with my side of greens. We brought our own birthday cake and there were no grumbles from the staff when dessert was refused, so thank you for that. Really I just wanted Paul to get a shout out. I work as a Sales Manager for a large hotel group and hospitality staff like Paul are worth their weight in gold. He's a real asset and clearly takes a lot of pride in getting it right, which he did on Sat 14th MarchMore

We tend to visit at least once a month for Sunday lunch. Today we were served by Sonny, he was a great waiter, even asked the chef if he could do chicken for my brother, even though it wasn't on the menu. Attentive, friendly and...fun. We were a party of 4, my only gripe is one I have thought when there is just 2 of us. The potatoes and vegetables are never enough. We got one small bowl which contained 3 roast potatoes, few baby carrots, 1 piece of cauliflower, small portion of red cabbage. This was supposed to be for 3-4 people, The chicken dish had vegetables on the plate but no potatoes. The meat is excellent but let down by lack of pot and vegetables. We didn't ask for extra as we couldn't be bothered, but I think giving each person they own bowl of potatoes and vegetables would be the way to go. We will keep returning, but be great if this was rectifiedMore

Nice restaurant with modern interior and good service. Truffle fries are delicious, avoid squid rings, thin, dry, overcooked slices in a lot of batter (10% of squid, 90% batter). I’m sure other dishes are lovely.More
