We had prepaid for the Cote offer - 2 courses from the Prestige menu for two people and a bottle of wine. The wine was brought swiftly, as was the starter. The manager realised the mains were taking a little longer than they should, and offered us bread while we waited. The food was superb, as was the service. It was a little slow but we didn't mind as we were there to have a nice meal not fast food.
Lovely food and exceptionally lovely staff who cannot do enough for you. Always perfect. The monthly menu is always different to the month before and exceptional value and quality.,
Staff very knowledgeable and friendly and enjoyed taking our time - meal wasn’t rushed.
