We went during covid outdoor seating rules. Was a bit windy but that's no fault of the restaurant. Staff were really friendly and went out of their way to keep us warm and just generally make us feel really welcome. We were the last table on a Sunday evening so they could have been forgiven for not making the effort but this certainly wasn't the case. Spent time talking to us and making sure we were looked after. Food was great!! Can't wait to go back when it's a little warmer and the fountains are back on 😀. Location is nice, quiet and clean.

The flavours were wonderful and the wine selection is superb. The service though was slow and I was disappointed that despite calling ahead several times to confirm we would have shelter and heating given dining outdoors, that neither of these things were provided - there are some heating and some covers, but it should have been made clear that not all tables would benefit.
I did ask for a blanket and was told I would be given one and never was which was a shame given other guests got blankets and also were moved to warmer tables as they become available.
The food was really superb though and incredibly good portions. A very healthy wine list - it was almost too difficult to choose.

The meal was absolutely fantastic. You can tell when the owners really care about their business, as the food and beer choices were perfect, and of course the wine selection is mind boggling! Steak Tartare, Scallops to start, both spot on. Then both of us had a steak, which was also sublime. Really raised the bar!

As ever our hosts for the evening where superb. The quality of the champagne is always exemplary, and Paul does a fantastic job of helping you select the right bottle from his extensive cellar. Do not next expect to find high street champagnes, these are locally sourced and you will certainly not be disappointed. The menu appropriately complements the champagnes on offer and the new Christmas menu looks great!
We will be back soon :)

Interesting, unusual, but extensive champagne list featuring small producers and champagnes made from all the grape varieties (not just the "big three"). Restaurant wine prices are reasonable, and shop prices likewise. Food was pretty good overall - excellent steak tartare, decent salad, nice oysters, average duck breast. Service was attentive, knowledgeable, and very pleasant, and the small restaurant space is thoughtfully arranged to cope with the new restrictions.
This was our first visit. We had a good evening, and well worth the journey up from Kent!

Brilliant wine list with many at good prices. Very knowledgeable staff able to give helpful advice to assist in choosing the right champagne and wines. Food is freshly cooked and well presented. Very large outside terrace is particularly attractive in these days of social distancing.

This is becoming a regular venue to eat outside while the weather is still nice enough to do so. Excellent champagne selection from smaller producers with a pick of the week available at £12 a glass to enjoy a different experience each week. Good food too.

Food was lovely but very slow service. Took over 15mins to get the menu. Order 2 oysters but only sent us one. When they sent again, it was a wrong dish instead of our 2nd oyster. Bill came didn't take off the missing item as well. I can see the frustration from the next table as well, as they asked if they can have some bread while they wait , but I saw no one serve them any bread even the waitress said yes. It's a mess and I don't think I will visit again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. They have a large selection of small champagne producers and we loved the bottles we had. Due to the reviews read, we were not expecting much on the food, but were pleasantly surprised by the food - both my wife's and my meals were superb! If you like champagne, this is the place for you - the price was totally adequate as well!

I have visited the restaurant at the begining of September and I can’t recommend this place enough!
I loved the variety of champagne and cremants at an affordable price which tasted very nice.
The food was lovely, especially the octopus carpaccio which we had for starters.
Overall lovely service, drinks, food and relaxing atmosphere! Definitely worth a visit.

It was a great place to have lunch. I was very happy to see brunch menu being served during the week as I love eggs Benedict. My dish was great (eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, avocado, grilled shrimp and home made hollandaise souse) and of course glass of bubbly was just a perfect addition. I was presently surprised by the selection of their champagnes and cremonts as well as pricing; you can get a bottle of nice champagne just at 40; the whole experience was very good and I will definitely come back again and invite my friends!
