Great food and service. 5 star service. We opted for the 3 course set menu with matching wines and enjoyed it.

We had a pleasant but relatively expensive meal. The staff were friendly but not up to standard for really a five star experience. The dinner was fine but would not rave about it.

The staff are knowledgeable and clearly committed to great service. The Salmon and the Venison, however, were both simply outstanding and stole the show.
