We were a table of 4 having the tasting menu. The restaurant was really helpfull when I advised them that one of our party had a dietery requirement. Before the meal began and at the start of every course we were assured as to how the meal had been modified to accommodated my request. The food was excellent and our friend in no way felt that she had had a different meal to us.
