First time visit. Sunday lunch, went for the standard 3 course lunch and ordered our wines by the glass. Couldn't fault it, service excellent, food great and value for money at that quality. Particularly good puddings, definitley returning.

An enjoyable lunch savouring the tasting menu and appreciating the great variety of flavours and diffrerent cooking skills that have earned them the Michelin star. The cured foie gras with the duck parfait and the venison were especially good. Thoroughly recommmed.
