We'd been several times before but they have changed their menu and it's not to our liking. ~£22 for a mid week can't be bothered to cook menu. £39 for a tapas type menu consisting of 3 mini main meals.

Well what a gem of a restaurant this is. Based on a tasting menu concept but don't think you will leave hungry as that is far from the case. We had the 'Adventure' 3 plate tasting menu followed by a dessert and every mouthful of...More

We ate here on a Friday night. First visit. Had the restaurant to ourselves for 2 hours as everyone else in Buckingham seemed to be elsewhere... an advantage for us. Interesting tasting menu. It's not for everyone but suited us. Each course was well presented...More

We ate here for our wedding anniversary. I was immediately impressed with the ambience and the amount of effort put into creating this. We found the service to be friendly and on occasions a little theatrical. However, at times it was simply too slow. Although...More
