Good menu selection and service is excellent with detailed commentary given for every course. The French sommelier gives good advice on his range of wines. Home made breads are baked inhouse and fresh and delicious.

Family meal in the bar. Excellent food and attentive staff. Food borders on expensive but is value for money. Bar has a pleasant atmosphere - smart but not stuffy. Will come again.

We were given a table by the waiting staff's station which I was not too impressed about, they could do without having a table there at all. (We booked in advance during the week) I found some of the staff quite bad at interacting with...More
