Latest review:

A refreshingly new take on how to do a Michelin started restaurant. There is artwork dotted around, the staff are pretty young, friendly and knowledgeable, there is also music playing in the background for added ambience. We did The Permanent Collection, Michael O’Hare’s take on a taster menu and paired it with the prestige matching wines. We were not disappointed with the food or the wines, nor the knowledge of the sommelier. A fantastic special place to dine out and I would happily return on another special occasion.

Our Review of The Man Behind The Curtain (May 2016)

It's safe to say The Man Behind The Curtain is one of the hottest restaurant tickets in the UK right now and it's not difficult to see why. With multiple TV appearances to showcase the ultra modern and spectacular looking food, not to mention a precious star from our favourite tyre munching inspectors, it's really no great surprise that the place is booked up for the entirety of 2016. It wouldn't surprise me if by the time I finish writing the review it's booked up for the entirety of 2017 also. But is the hype really justified? I was looking forward to finding out as I visited with my wife for dinner on a May Tuesday evening....
