Absolutely delicious food. They were really helpful with suggestions about what to order!

The service was excellent could not fault it. And they gave us a lovely surprise desert because it was my birthday. The only thing I would suggest is perhaps changing the wording of dumpling on your dish because people envisage sort of more of a meaty dumpling where is it was a bit more gnocchi style pasta and have to admit wasn’t great the rest of the meal was great Thank you
