Had wanted to visit for years and finally managed it aged 46! We had dinner here and it did not disappoint. From the moment you pull up outside to the second you pull away, it just feels special.
The staff are polite and friendly without being stuffy, imposing or insincere. They're happy to chat if you want to and equally will respect you if you'd rather not. The food was really good, I mean really good. In fact the steak I ordered was the best I'd ever tried and I suspect everything else will lack in the future! The sommelier was just brilliant; she couldn't contain her excitement at our choice of wine and went on to tell us a little about the vineyard it came from!
Yes it was eye wateringly expensive (£500 for 3 courses plus wine and aperatives!) but it was worth it for how it tasted and for all that it was and for the memory it's given us.
