the ambiance, food and service are always a very good standard. unfortunately this time I cannot say this was a good experience, we contacted you earlier on in the day to say the table for 9 had reduced to 6. this hadnt been reflected in the seating plan on arrival. the table was booked in a name that i had confirmed with the restaurant but when the guests arrived it wasnt, it was in my name? when paying the bill the deposit taken (£90) was not reflected in the bill? I am still waiting for a response from the restaurant. this was promised a day ago? also the waiter told the table to take the service charge off as the restaurant takes the tip and this isnt passed to the waiters? this is bad practice.

After so many years attending Christmas parties and private events never felt let down and disappointed like last time. Overcrowded, reservation was late over 40 min, no apologies. Three times the main course were going back, left hungry and was charged £40.00 for just starter no main course or dessert. It has ruined my next reservation in another place. Shame and disappointed in a big way!!

We were left at the bar a while the restaurant opens at 12 and are booking was 12 the doors opened just gone 12 we were then seated near the bar we had to ask for menus and drinks they requested a card behind the bar even though we were dining and after 25 minutes we had to ask if we could be seated . The food was good but thought there was a lack of service but very nice setting

Greeted on arrival and despite being early was shown straight to our table. We were then left for quite a while before someone came to take our drinks order. Struggled deciding what to choose from the a la carte menu as it had been scaled down, guessing because it’s Christmas. Food was fine perhaps a little bland in places but no complaints. On leaving we asked reception for our coats, we were told to head towards the back of the bar area to collect them to which we found 2 of our coats (4 in our party) together with others just dumped on the floor!! We did complain to reception but from the response it would appear to be the norm!

We went to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday. When I booked it I put that we were celebrating a birthday, we had a banner with us showing what we were celebrating- there was no recognition of this not even a sparkler on her dessert. Put a dampener on an otherwise great night

Amazing food which is tasty and presented well. The choice of food cannot be bettered. I particular love the Cod dish and fig and walnut pudding, they are to die for. The tastes are so different from anywhere else’s. The staff are impeccable when it comes service, efficiency and nothing is too much trouble. The ambience of the restaurant is welcoming and beautifully decorated.
Thank you so much for a wonderful meal..... yet again!

Arrived and had a drink at the bar before being seated, had the garlic bread starter- enough for 2 to share, ravioli and lasagna for main and had to have doggy bag as portions were very generous- no room for dessert. Great value using confidential voucher, lovely staff ,would go again

Beautiful decor great atmosphere. I’ve been a few times and it’s been a bit quiet but it was really good ambience this time . It is a big place so needs a lot of people to feel cosy. Drinks at bar area was good good good. A bit on the expensive side but generally overall great place. Would defo come again.

The atmosphere was really nice, the food was really good, especially the soup . The staff were all very pleasant and made you feel special. Looking forward to when I will be there in December for the Christmas meal. My sister comes from Edinburgh twice a year and this is our first place to book.
