Every course was even better than the last. We went for the wine flight also and every wine complemented the dish superbly Lovely ambience and gorgeous comfortable rooms. Highly recommended for a special night away.

The tasting menu is both delicious and varied, the wine list has wines for all tastes and pockets, the staff are delightful. All in all one of the best dining experiences -- and not just in the UK.

I cannot praise this superb restaurant too highly. Every course was magnificent, however the cauliflower veloute and the beef Wellington were as good as any dishes I’ve tasted. Oh and I forgot the octopus canapé. Superb. The matching wines, at a very reasonable price, were...More
