Value for the Money
Overall Enjoyed Most Other Comments

In general the food was good and excellent value for money,

I think the service could be improved and establish a consistency in that level, some dishes were across people causing them to lean back when simply the waiter should have walked around the table. Normally I would expect the plate to be be explained not just delivered and then walk away. the accompanying wine flyt seemed a good choice except each glass is 125ml so with one wine per plate that 850ml plus the welcoming prosecco makes nearly a litre of wine at £25 probably excellent value but would be better enjoyed in smaller quanities, one person ended up with three wines on the go at one stage. From a point of presentation several of the glasses were marked probably with residue from the washing that will not help the taste of the wine being enjoyed. If they look at the service delivered and focus more then they could provide an excellent experience of good food, superb location and a knowledgeable team at the moment it is not all there.
