"Had a great evening taster meal. Delightful flavours in nice surroundings. Sunday lunch was very different, traditional and quite a surprise, very good ingredients."

"The chef is clearly aiming high, and is going to get there. Not all the courses worked, but many did, and I have eaten far worse at places with a Michelin star. The gaps between courses were a bit long, and the restaurant space needs to be made more interesting. Service was just the right balance between friendliness and professionalism."
