We had a lovely time and were looked after really well. The food was amazing and we even took home a doggy box of the food we couldn't eat. Great service and lovely smiley people. I would highly recommend the venue and the food. We had a roast which was superb and the deserts were to die for. Thank you Deco for an amazing experience in such an amazing venue we will be back

The restaurant felt Clinically cold, no atmosphere, unlike the cafe downstairs If you are only serving one meal a Sunday roast, in set hours and you have bookings later in that session it is not acceptable to run out of food on the menu especially if your prices are top end The food we did have was very good and the service was good

Lovely venue. Personally I would like to see less fried food and a bit more green vegetable/salad options but it's early days for this place and they have to offer what their market wants. The location and decor is gorgeous and great drinks menu and brunch offer.

Dish description could be more accurate! Ham Hock Terrine was not a terrine as I understand the term.

Food was delicious and staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. For a new restaurant, it was excellent. Only thing would be the ambience, the room needs some soft furnishings to bring it to life. It was quite stark.

Friendly staff. Tasty food and good wine if a little pricey. Our table was a bit cramped in relation to the other tables on either side of us. We struggled to move chairs without bumping into adjacent diners. (Under the staircase).

I understand that this was the first night of the restaurant opening and I am always happy to support local businesses. But a few things to bear in mind that could enhance the customer experience in the future: 1 - portion control. Prices seemed reasonable, but I had Wagu beef and chips - would have been nice to have a couple of spears of tender stem broccoli or asparagus to accompany it. 2 - lighting could have been controlled in a way to create a nice, more relaxing ambience. Once it was dusk/dark outside the lights were still on quite strongly - made to feel more like we were dining in a canteen. 3 - a large area of the floor for seating at the back of the restaurant was empty. Even if there was no intention of filling the tables, it would have been nice to have tables set out or in a way where it didn't feel half empty. I assume more tables and chairs may be on order?

We enjoyed the food but service at the table was weak. We asked for water twice before it arrived and we were half way through the meal before some of the condiments arrived. We never got the salt and pepper we asked for. There were no spoons for desserts and forks offered instead. The waiter was very apologetic about this but said he couldn’t find any anywhere. The staff I think were overwhelmed by sheer numbers. We will go again when it settles and staff are more knowledgeable about their role as the ambience is good. Great watching the swimmers from the panoramic wondow.

'First night' so hesitant to be over critical but not up to standard yet. Lighting and heating made it seem cold. Waiters tried hard but inexperienced. Portion size disappointing. Welcome for a 'first evening' nothing special. Overall taste was good. Prosecco a little flat. Maitre D' dressed as if out for a casual evening in the pub and didn't seem to be taking us too seriously when we mentioned our concerns, but was very pleasant overall. No offer of bread or sides to bulk out the meal. I took the fish as main and there was some meat as part of the dish, a bit bizarre in itself, but when I asked for that to be removed nothing was offered to replace it. Of course the place itself is amazing. Reports on breakfasts etc are good. Unfortunately it appears to placing itself as fine dining, although not at that price point, but it's not fine dining. It will improve as it finds its level and I shall go again as it deserves to succeed.
