    Beautifully set out restaurant in a grand hotel. Food was of a very high standard, though we have had better for less money. We had the tasting menu with accompanying wine. Every course had a well balanced taste & texture. My only one gripe of the meal, was that my partners lamb was rarer than mine....mine was still good, but hers was better. Nice selection of wines with a good explanation of origin & how they would compliment the dish. Service was very efficient & professional. In this very formal dining establishment, with fine dining there was a dress code of no jeans. I thought that was reasonable, until we walked in to find people in jeans and t-shirts. ??????? If you are not staying at the hotel, prebook taxi a few days in advance. We were unable to get transport on the day, meaning minimal alcohol.

    Excellent service. Food wonderful. Really like the provision of a box to take home the cakes we couldn’t eat (too many to eat at the time !) wwonderful atmosphere and experience . Also not being rushed out for next sitting. Could take as long you liked to just enjoy it.

    Amazing. Great service so attentive. My wife is pregnant and so naturally we had a lot of questions about the suitability of certain dishes all answered confidently and clearly and no issues with making adjustments on request. Every amuse bouche was explained so well and presented beautifully again with additional explanations for my wife. Great night delicious food all made by the wonderful service. Thank you all so much for a lovely night. We’ll definitely come back.

    The restaurant was nice, had a good atmosphere and the food very nice but overpriced and sadly took far to long to arrive. We waited for 1.5hrs to get our starter. By the time we'd had our main course it was too late in the evening to stomach a desert which was disappointing. The staff were very nice and helpful with my gluten free requirements (coeliac) however my partners requirements regarding dairy seemed to be misunderstood as the amuse-bouche arrived full of dairy. Could do a lot better considering the price tag attached to this experience.

    We had an afternoon tea for 2 and it was delicious! Lovely selection of savoury and sweet choices and so much that we had to ask for 'doggy bag' to take home what we couldn't finish! Perfect service in wonderful surroundings - this was our second visit and we will definitely be back. Thank you
