Established for 12 years now and led by the passionate Steve Waites, Michelin Trained Head Chef & Proprietor. Steve and the team cook creative modern fine dining menus with an emphasis on flavour and presentation, which have an innovative twist and are influenced by the Mediterranean.

The restaurant interior is stylish and smart and has been carefully designed, retaining many of the original features. Its modern uncluttered elegance provides a comfortable and relaxed dining experience with guaranteed consistently high standards of fine food and first class service.

 With prices starting from £8.00 per course (lunch menu), the lunch, dinner and tasting menus each change approximately every four weeks to encompass seasonality of ingredients and offer plenty of choice including a few inventive house favourites, complemented by an excellent modern wine list.

“Some of the friendliest and most efficient service we have ever experienced. A lovely
ambiance within the restaurant. Absolutely fantastic food. Lovely touch at the end of our
anniversary dinner! Get yourself booked in here before they get their first
Michelin star and treble their prices as they should!” Trip Advisor Oct 2015
