Stopped by for Dinner and had a very tasty meal of their Calf’s Liver. It wasn’t the usual pan fried with pink centres, but more of a braised texture, but it was very nice all the same. The mash and accompaniments were also good, but...More

Met family here for a 20th birthday dinner, fantastic. Super surroundings, fab staff and the food was lovely, a really big choice cooked to perfection. Music later in the evening really made the night.

I am a regular attender every fortnight. Today: some very well cooked trout. Fish is generally good here. Service is okay, could be better. I do keep coming back though. For Southampton, it's reliably good.

We chose the fixed price menu which delivered across the board. A goats cheese and pear salad followed by salmon made this exceptional value and was complimeneted by very attentive and professional staff.
