I'm not put off by the mouse sightings, I think this place is great. I've been to the bar before and went to the restaurant for the first time last week on a glorious summer's evening. We were lucky to be seated by the window with a wonderful view. The service is very good and the food and wine list superb. I was glad to see a good selection of wines by the glass, so we could order a glass to go with each course rather than a bottle that didn't really go with anything. I had a chilled glass of Manzanilla sherry with an egg, truffle and wild mushroom starter which was perfectly cooked, while my partner opted for a very fresh, fragrant crab dish with a glass of off-dry German Riesling – which gave me some pangs of food and wine matching envy! I got to finish off the delightful Riesling though with my salmon main which was perfectly undercooked while he had a glass of Pinot Noir with a divine bacon wrapped rabbit, complete with some surprise gamey bits. We didn't have puddings as we had to head off but watched the theatrics of a baked alaska being flambed at the next-door table.
