    Absolute delicious, as usual! The new winter menu which started the night we were there was full of tasty winter warmers with a nice Christmassy theme running through it. Service was friendly, efficient and professional.

    So it's an odd one. For me 3stars - because it should be better. So compared to others it's very good, but the price is much more, so expectations are higher. And you should 'get what you pay for'. Our bill was £400 for the 3 of us. So it's an expensive night. And it was only 3 stars for that price. The food itself was very tasty, but not 'special' - only one dish was truly noteworthy (the cauliflower if you're interested). I was hoping for more 'wow' with each mouthful, but it wasn't there. Our initial host (I think his name was Dan?) was a very amiable Irish chap who acted as sommelier and truly gave us something extra - I hope someone feeds back to him how he truly raised the night for us. The other servers however had that missing quality we expected. There was little explanation of the dishes - it came across rushed and we had to look at the menu to figure out what we were eating. The restaurant isn't that large, so it would have been better if there was a little more 'hosting' - it truly changes the evening and the experience. This is again something I expect from a 'high end' restaurant, and thus the 3 stars. So would I go back? Well this is my second time, and I wasn't sure after the first as my experience was similar. But everyone deserves a second chance. Unfortunately for me, it's not worth the money and so I wouldn't go back. Sorry.

    We had Menu A. Great food well balanced. Great service and atmosphere. Don’t have a single thing I would change. Tipping was a choice- unlike other venues and because of that we had no issue giving a generous tip as it was our choice for what was a fabulous afternoon. Thanks

    Excellent service and tasting menu. Quality produce and good portion sizes. Lovely wine pairing and very reasonably priced. My wife is dairy free and having given notice when booking this was catered for excellently, didn't feel she was missing out by having completely different dishes to tye normal menu as small tweeks were made to accommodate. Highly recommmed and will definitely be back.

    The 4 course lunch at £25 was super value, and the food outstanding. Dave Coulson is a wonderful chef, creative, modern, perfectly seasoned and presented food. Service excellent, (Adam) beautiful surroundings. Eaten here several times over the past 10 years, and never had a single disappointing dish.

    This was my first visit to this gem of a restaurant. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food we ate is probably the best I have tasted in the last 5 years and its quality and overall presentation matches any of the Michelin starred establishments I've visited over the last 20 or so years. We sampled the 7 course tasting menu and a flight of wines, costing £70 per head, excluding cocktails. Each course was exquisite, the layers of flavour subtle yet satisfying on every level. You don't feel rushed and you leave feeling excellent all over. The highlight - of many - was the halibut with mushrooms, crispy chicken skin and the most indulgent, umami-flavoured chicken pie sauce ; it was unique, inventive and simply unforgettable. Go, at the earliest opportunity : experience this with yourself and others. You will want to return, again and again.

    Thank you for a wonderful meal . Service was tremendous and the staff knew the details of every course . We tried to decide on our favourite but gave up in the end because they were all so good . Only downside was when we booked the only table was 8pm and by the time we left it was 10.30 . Too late for us oldies . Next time we will book an earlier table Thank you

    The food was amazing. We already knew it would be, having been before. What stood out this time was the exceptional service from the whole team. Took my 15 year old nephew for a 'new experience' 2022 Xmas present and he loved the place and the food. The 2 waitresses deserve a mention for their excellent service. Thanks to all.
