Restaurant Reviews and Social

Average rating: 4.5

Latest review:

Setting is nice the bar area is little small but has a conservatory that is nice, air conditioning was a little chilly for my personal liking. The food was good but the atmosphere was "odd" felt like it was lacking something but couldn't quite put my finger on it. Waiting staff were helpful but not as fluently knowledgeable as I would expect in a Michelin starred restaurant. We had a seven course taster menu and at least four of the dishes our waitress stuttered over the ingredients that were on our plates. The bartender was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about wine and had a huge knowledge pot that he was keen to share and guided us to a fantastic bottle of red wine.
