Hey Pinky!!! Thanks so much for you lovely comments! Do you remember the servers name by any chance so I pass on the good feedback? Nick
Really good food. A few service glitches but staff corrected and were really polite.
Hi Juliet, Sorry hear there some some issues but im glad our team managed correct them for you. I will look into. But thankyou for the great feedback on the food Nick
Overall the veggie breakfast was nice, the spinach wasn't very nice and had no flavour.
Thank you for the feedback Natalie. I will pass on to the chef to see what we can improve. Nick
Meeting up with friends - good breakfast but unfortunately the music was too loud to be able to converse without having to shout. We asked for the music to be turned down which it was but after 5 minutes it was turned up again. If I wanted loud music I would go to a club not a restaurant!
Hi there, Apologies on this. The music shouldn't be at such a volume so I will make sure the team know where to limit it. Im sorry this let us down on your visit Nick
Slowish service and poached eggs were cooked all the way through
Hi there, Thank you for letting us know, and apologies this let us down yesterday. We will always try to improve so will pass on to the team Nick
Been a number of times, welcome from front desk is always friendly, my breakfast was lovely (mushrooms and poached egg on toast), service was patchy and inattentive but overall was a good experience.
Hi Catherine, Apologies the service was a bit hit and miss for your visit. It is something we are working on to get more people to join the team. Hopefully we are more on it on your next visit. Thanks Nick
We booked ahead of time and were given a choice of the bar or sharing tables. We chose the bar. Our waiter was prompt and helpful. We tried the noodle bowl and some suya. It was all delicious and wonderful. Next time, I'm going for desert too
Hey LolaEats84!! We are super happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon Nick
Simply delicious food and great atmosphere. Had a selection of different small bowls and just really great quality food.
Thanks Tom! We appreciate the great feedback!!! Nick

Cheers Marc! Its great to have you as one of our loyal regulars! Let me know when your'e next in and I will pop over and say hello Nick
Lovely setting and service
Thanks so much!!!!!
Food and service both excellent as ever. Can be hard to get a table even when there appears to be space, but once seated worth it in spades. Best to book ahead …
Cheers John! We are thrilled you had such a great visit with us! See you soon Nick
Such a nice experience here. Brunch food was lovely and coffee was delicious! So much so I want to find out the brand of coffee they use so I can start using it myself. The staff were so attentive and friendly without being over the top. Excellent service. Great atmosphere. Would highly recommend.
Thanks Claire!!! Its always great to have such glowing feedback! Thank you!!!!!
Lovely menu, good service and a great place to spend an evening with friends. So relaxed and unhurried.
Thanks so much for the lovely feedback Lawrence!
Fabulous lunch, we had a wonderful thyme. Really recommend the thyme and champagne cocktail too…!
Cheers Estelle! Love the pun!!!!!! See you back with us soon!
Great restaurant with great service and most of all great food!
Thanks for the lovely feedback!
Food and value for money was excellent.
However, we were overcharged and everything seemed too much trouble for the waiter.
We had a lovely breakfast,, definitely go back 😊
Thanks so much Danielle! We look forward to welcoming you back soon!!
Lovely food and generous portions - we split one savoury and one sweet breakfast item
Fab breakfast with friends. Great service and lovely food.
Thanks for the lovely comments Helen!
Really lovely service with fabulous, comfort food. Unpretentious and nice atmosphere

Thats great to hear Rosie! We look forward to having you back as well, and as always thanks for the lovely comments
Great friendly service
I love a trip to the Riding House, it's my go to on a "me day" whether breakfast or lunch. Today was still nice but a little disappointing, service was poor and food was just average.
Hi there, sorry we seemed to let you down on this occasion. If you can, could you email me on firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get some further info from you? Hope you're well Nick
Had a lovely brunch with a friend but the only issue was they did not quite get my order right, I did not complain as it was still delicious and we had a lovely time. They are very strict on only having the table for 1 hr 20 mins!
Hi! I'm sorry we didn't get your order right! That is disappointing to hear, however i'm glad you still enjoyed it! Please let me know (email@example.com) when you next plan to come down so I can make it up to you! Nick
Staff absolutely lovely . Menu choices excellent, overall hard to fault
Thanks so much Mitchel! We value your feedback!
Tasty food but service very slow with over an hour wait for mains
Fab outdoor seating, very friendly service and a lovely breakfast. The pancakes were outrageously sweet but otherwise good food.
Thanks Isabel! We appreciate the feedback
Brunch with friends
Very pretty restaurant with nice outdoor seating. Food was quite expensive but didn’t seem like a lot. Wouldn’t be enough for a man. Need either more food or smaller plates at least! Service is okay.
My twin sister and I turned 25. Then pancakes are literally pan-cakes haha, it was great! Thank you for the great food.
Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!! We are glad you enjoyed our pan-cakes on your special day!! :-) Nick
Had such a good experience. Food was amazing and came out quickly, staff were very attentive; they were quick to fill out water glasses and to follow up on some food that we’d asked for. They were quite busy but not all the tables were filled - but the bill arrived before we’d asked for it and it felt like we were on a factory line being moved along. Fair to them, we’d been there a little over an hour.
Hey Tuuli, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit and the staff were as attentive as usual! However sorry if you felt we rushed you at the end! Next time we will make sure you have as much time as you like! Hopefully see you soon Nick
Food is amazing! Very high quality food and cooked to perfection. A good range of food on the menu. Great wine list!
Great waiter - lovely food and atmosphere. Will definitely visit again.
Creat team lunch to celebrate a birthday. Food was excellent and service very kind! Will come again!
Wine was excellent and the food was amazing. Service was great, would totally recommend.
Not the cheapest but worth going for a treat/ special occasion
Thanks Gemma! We appreciate the love!
A bit disappointing to be honest. The menu looks interesting and diverse, but the delivery is so-so on my experience. I was at the restaurant for supper with family and friends.
For a starter, I had the squid and Korean fishcakes: the squid and sauce were tasty, but the fishcakes didn't go with the rest of the dish, either in terms of texture or flavour. For the main, I had the Portobello Wellington, which was tasteless and didn't work.
I ordered two bottled beers, the same one each time, but I thought it odd that on both occasions I was given a new glass - a bit wasteful: it really makes very little difference to have the glasses extra chilled, given that the beer was straight from the fridge.
I am told that the
Food average at best nobody to explain menus and poor service
Delicious food and amazing cocktails!
Excellent service and ambience! Would go again!!!!
