Wonderful tasting menu, the peat smoked haddock ravioli is divine! Service could be improved - had to chase waiters down to get water or wine several times. However, wonderful meal overall with a great atmosphere in a beautiful spot.

I would recommend dinner - the tasting menu was amazing. Obviously lunch is a lot less expensive but you may only go once !
