Firstly this place is gorgeous looking and inviting in location. However I found it hard to find and would make people aware of this as well.
Secondly, i found the wine list one of the most daunting experiences in my life with the vast array of choices and level of pricing. This may mean I was out of my depth , but if you feel the way I did then rely on the exceptional sommelier. His knowledge and the trust that could be place din him to provide wines within our price range and quality was a real high point.
The menu was well shown and the ability to choose from the two versions helped. However having picked the less expensive (£72.50p.p. at my time of attendance) the extra that were added during the meal seemed exactly like those as part of the more expensive choice and I would have been deeply disappointed if the extras had cost me another £20p.p.
The food itself was lovely and tasty and the mixture of flavours and textures shows extremely gifted cooking and sophistication along with a keen eye for detail and art style presentation. Most would probably state that’s the reason its sitting with 2* Michelin rating.
The service was again of a high class, yet the atmosphere was lacking and there was a distinct impression of being aloof. if a restaurant can be!!
Would like to try again to see if it was just my initial feelings or if my first impression is the correct one.
