Latest review:

I’d like to give 3.5 stars. The food is very good, and so is the service, the environment / interior is very bland and doesn’t match the price point of the restaurant. My main issue is the price is vastly inflated compared what you get. We ate here 3 years ago and did the tasting menu with wine pairing. Tonight we did the same but it’s now 25% more expensive but with no improvement in terms of quality or quantity. I don’t mind spending money on good food and wine but I feel maybe the management are being slightly greedy and need to re-establish their offering. An example would be the £65 per person tasting menu doesn’t include a cheese course, but they try to charge £10 pp extra for it, Which seems unnecessary. Overall it’s a good meal but having spent £250 for two people I did leave feeing overcharged and slightly underwhelmed.
