We chose the tasting menu and added the smoked eggplant dip because it sounded so good. Everything was impeccably presented and delicious. Highlights were: eggplant dip (close to the best thing I have tasted in months-quite amazing) mushroom dish, pork cutlet, witlof salad, the palate cleanser.

Never misses a beat! Beautiful food. The in house made bread is a given & won’t dissappoint. I had the lamb shoulder. Some fat on it which I’m not of fan of at any time but was very tasty. Just not big enough. Was more of a slice than a piece of lamb shoulder. Potatoes side were perfect! So crunchy & plenty. Carrots nice too as a side. Up there in pricing but you get what you pay for. Gnocchi very nice too. Super desserts in particular chocolate pudding. We were seated in front of the fire which was cosy although did get a little too warm. Next time I’d request seating at a table with window next to it. Great views of yachts although day was drizzly. Worth the venture out. Staff attentive; not super busy for a Sunday. Be mindful of 10% surcharge on Sundays. Seems to be common now everywhere.
