Second visit but first for dinner. Not the biggest menu but could not fault the food - delicious. Attentive, discrete service. 3 course meal for 2 including 2 cocktails was under £70 so excellent value for money. We will be back for a third visit

Lovely meal and relaxed atmosphere. So nice to get a Christmas set menu which is not like a production line. Fantastic. Highly recommend.
