Delicious food, beautifully presented. Set lunch menu is a total bargain. Staff professional and friendly. Loved the homemade lemonade, caramelised butter and dessert of apple tart, blue cheese and cider: original and food pairing at its best. Loved it. Book in advance

I'd say no, but then my mate loved it when he went last year. Must be really down to what they decide for the menu that month. For me everything apart from the food is great :) I've eaten in some amazing places and No6... More
