David and his team are excellent. Food is amazing, wine list is amazing, and the deserts are homemade and simply to die for! I wish I could come more often.

Pro: Nice service. Clean restaurant. Plenty of wine choices. "
Cons: Chips where burnt. Wellington was overcooked, expensive prices for poor quality food. Tesco Mediterranean bread. Piggy tips tea. Ponsy atmosphere to force you to pay the price. Definitely owner makes good profit. Not coming again thank you very much.

DOESN'T DESERVE ANY STARS BUT HAVE TO ENTER SOMETHING. FOOD NAFF. DAVID THE OWNER'S ATTITUDE STINKS MORE THAN HIS CHEESE. DESSERTS LOOKED LIJE A CAR CRASH AT THE MR.KIPLING FACTORY. ARRIVED AT 8 AND GOT MY MAIN COURSE AT 11. FABULOUS CHARCOALED MINUTE PIECE OF STEAK. SILLY ME...THOUGHT I'D ORDERED THE MEDIUM RARE FILLET. RATHER THAN BEING WORRIED ABOUT OUR MEAL, THE OWNER WAS MORE CONCERNED ABOUT HIS EMPTY CHAMPAGNE BOTTLES OUTSIDE THE DOOR THAT HAD FALLEN OVER. IF YOU'VE EVER WANTED TO EXPERIENCE THE REAL BASIL FAWLTY EXPERIENCE, PLEASE MEET DAVID, THE OWNER - THE MOST UNPROFESSIONAL RESTAURANTEUR YOU'LL FIND. YET, YOU'LL PAY HEAVILY FOR THE EXPERIENCE. AND LIKE US, DEFINITELY WON'T RETURN.
