Great food, impeccable service, unobtrusive and attentive staff
We hand the 5 course set lunch with selected wines, food was amazing, and more than enough
Well chosen wines complimented each course, all in all a very pleasant experience

We went for the 5 course tasting menu - overall good but must say some dishes were underwhelming. Foie gras based amuse bouche was enjoyable but bread was so disappointing - it had lots of fennel seeds which I disliked. Trout was good but nowhere as good as that I tried at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons (which truly melt in the mouth) and apple sauce didn’t really add to the dish. Potato dish (tunworth, trompette) was really lovely, full of flavours and crispy lamb breast was delicious as well. Then came my least favourite dish - lamb shoulder done sous-vide - it seriously lacked flavour and I struggled to finish it. We had beef fat cooked potatoes, truffle as a side dish too and that was disappointing - couldn’t taste truffle at all. Dessert (Rhubard, ginger and honey) was really good - as someone who is not a big fan of ginger, I didn’t have lots of expectation but it was one of the best desserts I tried in Michelin starred restaurants in terms of how ingredients all came together to give that flavour (only ‘one’ of the best though as soufflés in some places are hard to beat!!). Service was attentive and the lady at the front desk was extremely friendly and welcoming. We had cross bun infused chocolates to take away which were very tasty (not if you don’t like the taste of cross buns though!). With just a glass of wine each, the bill came to about 100 pound per person which was very reasonable for a 2 Michelin star restaurant. Overall, very enjoyable lunch which would have been better if the lamb shoulder was not so disappointing!

8-course tasting menu with wine pairing. Saturday night, 9pm. Booked with 3-hours notice.

Excellent food and exceptional wine selection. All but one of the courses impressed, but that’s a solid ratio for such places. The salmon and the lamb were stand-outs - simply brilliant.

They were a couple of problems though. The service was somewhat inconsistent with the wine sometimes not being poured until AFTER the food was on the table. Also, for a couple of dishes there were long waits between courses, one of which the waitress apologised for without us raising it.

Also, it was quite noisy. Granted it was a Saturday night, but the tables did seem to be rather tight next to each other. On a few occasions we literally couldn’t hear what the other person was saying.

I understand this is a two star Michelin restaurant. Marcus needs to focus a bit on the basics of service or he could lose one.

Arrived early enabling us to try a few cocktails in the reputable Blue bar, we were luckily enough get seated in the bar as they are strict in numbers which is great if your in but rubbish if your not!!! a great selection of cocktails for all tastes and an extensive spirits menu,the atmosphere was relaxed and waiters were on hand but never too much.

We were seated in the restaurant, as in most of the fine dining places we've been to the taster menu with wine pairing was our choice as you always get such a varied selection of food.

The 8 course taster menu consisting of Herdwick lamb being my favourite , every dish as expected was beautifully presented, full of flavour which was enhanced by the sommeliers choice.

although we went as a couple the tables were mixed with family,larger groups and couples.

All in all a perfect start to a birthday weekend, we would most definitely recommend.
