  • Got a deal via Travel Zoo, £21 per head which included tour, tasting and a 3 course meal so was exceptional value for money, plus at the time of writing they give free cocktail on Monday or Tuesday in the restaurant. Even without the deal you would be hard pushed to get a three course meal of this quality for what they are charging.
  • The bistro is very impressive; new, contemporary and very elegant. Customer service was very good. Attentive and friendly staff. But it is expensive and the portions seemed a little small for the money.
  • Loved it! Got a guided tour bought for me... Well worth it learnt a lot about my Gin! Great staff and good food served!
  • Lovely tour of a modern distillery. Nice cafe for an after tour bite too.
  • After reading mixed reviews, we were a little apprehensive about booking a meal here for our 35th wedding anniversary at the ‘steak night’ last night. We consoled ourselves that, even though the prices were high; at least we would have a tasty gourmet meal, that would justify the price. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case at all. To try a good sample, we each ordered different starters, steaks, and side dishes. Although the portion sizes weren’t too small, as other reviewers had experienced, there was nothing about the meal to justify the pretentious high prices, neither taste or quality. We were both left extremely disappointed with our meals, and didn’t enjoy any of it at all. In fact, were left with a horrible ‘oily or greasy’ aftertaste. We could have had a nicer meal elsewhere for a third of the price, and won’t be repeating the experience any time soon
