The low score for food was due to the Goat dishes simply being goat bones with very little meat. The low score for the atmosphere was due to the noise. It was incredibly noisy. We couldn't hear the waiters describing the food, could hardly talk to each other at the table. Had we gone at a time with viewer diners it may have been better. Choose your time to go.
Thanks for the feedback Nick - sorry to hear this. We have quite days Sun - Wed. We have also just swapped over our menu to the Winter menu. We hope you come try it.

Very noisy. The restaurant really needs some soft furnishings to deaden the noise levels. Thought it would be fairly quiet on a Weds night but it wasn’t!

A lengthier break between courses please
Thank you! For our lunch patrons we usually serve our courses quicker given corporates usually have short break times. We're more than happy to slow this down to your requirement next tine you're in. Just please let us know. Thank you.

Absolutely fabulous! Wonderful and genuine service. Timely, personal and respectful. Delicious seasonal meal choices that were well explained. The waiter was proud to present a memorable experience that met the importance of the occasion. The restaurant is intimate yet I never felt cramped. Well done!
Thank you Sally, This is what we're all about. Our winter Menu is based off a biography more than 550 years old. We've even had a painting made with this theme for the season. We hoppe to see you come back and try it.
