On arrival we were quickly shown to our table by the friendly, efficient staff. The lady who served us all evening was very attentive and made it a very easy, enjoyable experience. To start I ordered the pate, which was a very generous portion. It was light, flavoursome and delicious. For mains I ordered the Lamb shank, which came with a range of vegetables and roast potato’s that just melted in your mouth. The lamb was succulent and seasoned perfectly. There were an array of desserts to choose from, which I settled with the fruit salad to cleanse my palate. Fruity and fantastic.
This was a truly excellent meal, which I will definitely be returning for again in the future. We retreated to the bar and lounge area after dinner, which was sophisticated, ambient and romantic. Just the relaxing setting you need after a lovely meal.
A must try for an evening of peace and tranquillity.
