The whole experience was let down by wait staff going AWOL towards the end of the meal. This restaurant presents itself as premium high end dining and quite frankly the attention at the end of our meal was more akin to what you would expect at a cafe! A real shame as the kitchen is obviously very capable, easily pulling off their end of the bargain.

Food tasted great but portion sizes were extremely small. That said, the potato side was surprisingly fantastic 10/10 for taste and quantity!

Outstanding view, window table a must to enjoy the stunning picturesque views of Piccadilly Valley.
Service was 10/10 friendly staff.
Food was superb, we had the Short Story degustation which was more than enough! I wouldn’t be able to eat the Long Story but most men probably could.
Overall a perfect evening celebrating our anniversary.
Thank you 😊

We ate there on both nights. The first night we were booked on the Manor Indulgence, so the second night we thought we would do the 7 course menu, but was very disappointed to see there was exactly the same food both nights.

Outstanding restaurant on all fronts. Definitely one of our favourites for a special lunch/dinner and we are quite picky. We could not fault them!

Selected the 7-course degustation. We expected better quality service for the premium pricing. Seated on top of the glass storage area so constantly had wait-staff coming and going. My wife is pregnant so had dietary requirements. Twice the meals were placed incorrectly so I (unknowingly) ate the one cooked differently.

We loved the environment. Simply put - we have sat many long degustations and this one did not match the price. We agreed we would return but not for that service. Would love to visit again with friends for a regular service.

Overall it’s a lovely spot for dinner but probably won’t come back. Food was yummy but not amazing. Nothing that we were really wanting to come back for to try again.

The food was incredible! We had the long journey degustation.
It was really dark in the corner we were sitting so once dark outside couldn’t actually see what we were eating but it was all delicious. They were able to cater well for coeliac gluten free. Would love to have had butter with the bread instead of oil though!
The dessert was a celebration thats for sure!!

Thank you for providing a wonderful dining experience. It was a special occasion celebrating my partners 30th. The chef added an additional plate with delicious chocolate script “happy 30th birthday”. The level of attention to detail and the extremely attentive and friendly staff made this day one to remember. We will be back to dine here again. Highly recommended.

Amazing food, wine, service and especially views! Although this restaurant is on the pricey side, the quality of food and service is great value and well worth the money. Already looking forward to the next time we can go back.

My girlfriend and I each had the 4 course meal and made different selections for each course to sample as much as possible. Everything we had was amazing and the courses were quite generous. We ordered some extra sides and we honestly could have gone without them. The staff were all fantastic and were "there" enough that we always felt as though we were being taken care of without being obtrusive.
Definitely recommend getting there early and having a drink at their bar before your meal. If their old fashioned was anything to go by then those bartenders know their craft very well.
