We went here for my wife's birthday and had a truly great meal. The restaurant is quite small and personal but the food is a great standard. It is well worth the price and their wine recommendations are reasonable. Many thanks

Second time we have visited and the food, venue, service and wine is extremely good. I think it's very good value for money when you consider the quality and excellent taste of the food. Would visit again. Lovely as a romantic evening.
