Seven of us came here for my birthday and everyone thoroughly enjoyed all three courses without exception. Some people had the curries which were clearly made by someone who knew what they were doing. The cuttlefish starter was delicious. Don't expect the quickest service - if that's what you want then go to a chain where it's all pre cooked.... More

We popped in here for a quick drink with a few friends. Lovely quant bar with yummy cocktails to offer. There isn't huge amount of seating so people end up using the bar as a table so can be a little difficult to get a drink but will definitely be going back.

Enjoyed the service as it was personable, a really nice touch with the candle in a bottle that was used as a lamp which had our name on it!! Even though the food area is intimate you always had your own... More

My boyfriend and I were stuck for places to go on a miserable night and we both agreed we'd try the wine cellar, having previously visited before for both work and pleasure I knew what to expect. I did ring and book a table in advance as I know it does get very busy. We arrived early and had a... More

Been to this place a few times now and the food has always been excellent. My last visit the service was particularly slow with regards to drinks. Waitress did acknowledge this and apologised, overall I would recommend this place.

For Saturday dinner, my husband and I love this little unique gem. The staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive. It's a small venue so you're best to book at the weekend, but we popped in on the off-chance. There weren't any tables available but they suggested we had a drink and there might be a cancellation. Well, our luck was... More
