    The ambience and waiting staff were absolutely fine. However I dont know who cooked the roast potatoes but they were very very disappointing. You cannot offer a roast dinner and serve leathery roasties. They had obviously not been cooked in hot enough fat or left too long before they were served. The parsnips also were uber al dente. Such a shame

    Booked a table vi Fork but the restaurant hasn’t received the on line booking. Still managed to squeeze us in on a day that started out warm and sunny and the a torrential downpour that had the outside guests running for cover. This caused a bit of an issue with the service but nothing too drastic… staff need to come up to speed after confinement…. Definitely going back but will phone direct next time!

    We were treated to three courses of delicious food, beautifully presented and amazing value for money too. Compliments to the chef and staff. Our preferred restaurant in this region by far...

    Beautifully original food in a lovely setting close to The Charente. Great bottle of wine at a very fair price. This chef is top-drawer! Will definitely be back again.

    The quality of the food was excellent. Everything was cooked to perfection and the combination of flavours and texture was perfect. I am already looking forward to my next meal there.
