Had a gorgeous meal and the service was excellent. Relaxed atmosphere with an exquisite menu which definitely wouldn’t disappoint. I had the scallop, venison and elderflower parfait and they were each in their own right amazing. Will definitely be back.
Brilliant service with lovely staff. Food, service and setting were amazing. Would recommend, in fact taking my parents as love it so much! Can’t wait!
We enjoyed a pre dinner drink in the bar area. An excellent array of wines were available by the glass. The menu was varied. I opted for a quail starter which was perfectly cooked for such a delicate and small meat. Beef main which simply fell apart and melted. The dauphonoise potatoes were to die for. Highly recommend the shared desert platter which allows an ample amount of a variety of deserts to share between 2. Highly recommended...
