So everything was perfect. They catered for both of us well, and my partner had the international flight of wine - which was with generous servings. We loved all the courses, though on one occasion the adaption for vegetarian with no alcohol did cause one...More

We started with a drink in the upstair salon, followed more champagne and canapés. Then walked back downstairs for our 8 course meal with paired wines, interrupted by an additional plate of cheese with more wine. We ended the evening with coffee and a selection...More

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food is very good, albeit served in miniscule portions. They are a bit up themselves though.

We took the 8 course tasting meal here on 13th March. Although expensive (what Michelin restaurant isn't?), the whole experience was thoroughly enjoyed by our party of six, and the quality of the food, and outstanding service meant money well spent. Daniel Clifford's signature dish-...More

Yes, the food is amazing. And the we chose the ‘Round the World’ flight of wines, which were also delicious. And maybe, to be expected. We had a table right next to the kitchen which was brilliant too, to be able to see the team...More

The tasting menu was a delight. Sublime food and impeccable service. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to dine in fine restaurants and I must say this has been an absolute highlight.

The meal and service were superb in every way. However the wine flight at £145 per person was a complete rip off. We had six very small glasses of wine, probably the equivalent to half a bottle each in total. It spoilt our experience, as...More

8 course tasting menu with their flight of wines, about £250 p/p. Wonderful food but difficult to give you the menu as it changes regularly.
