The first course started out nicely enough with decent food and service. We enjoyed the goats cheese salad, vegetable broth, and smoked salmon starters. Then the dining room got busy and we lost service. My second starter, the risotto, was bland at best fulfilled on neither the promise of pumpkin or ginger flavoring as well as a general lack of sesoning. Instead of checking to see why I hadn't touched the dish, our waiter simply gave us time and didn't fire the main courses to the kitchen until another waiter noticed that we needed some help. A 30! Minute stretch occurred between courses which should be unheard. Especially when the main dish that should have taken longest was only a medium sirloin. The veal was overcooked and likely sat under the heat lamp for too long. While my lamb was cooked nicely, the mint sauce accompaniement was barely present which was a shame since it was really delightful. The sirloin and chips was simple and nice but something we certainly cold have concocted at home. The carmenere merlot blend we ordered to accompany was little more than a nicer table wine rather than anything special. Needless to say, we won't be returning.


Went to this restaurant for a team Christmas dinner with some colleagues (10 of us). The food was very nice, especially as we had the £25 menu. The atmosphere however with non-existent. Even though there was quite a few people in the restaurant, it was just really quiet and had a boring feel to it – although we did try to make the best of it. I wouldn’t recommend this place for social affairs i.e. birthday/Christmas celebrations – nor would I recommend for a romantic meal. To be honest, I can’t think of many occasions where this would be a suitable venue – maybe a boring working lunch? Food was nice, but would not go back as it’s just a sterile room where food is eaten.
