Had an amazing lunch there this week. Such creative dishes and amazing flavours. Lovely relaxed setting too. Obviously we're not the only ones who love this place as it was full on a Monday lunchtime. Deserves more accolades. Had not been for some time but will be coming back more often now.

What a great place to have some really delicious food. You do pay a bit extra but you certainly get fantastic quality in return. The food is made with love and care and making the most out of the local produce- this shines through! Fab selection of ales and wines, and the staff are really knowledgeable and attentive.

We've been here a few times , but I'm wondering about bothering again. It's a place you want to go and have enjoy something that little bit better, somewhere where the staff pay that little bit more attention, and where you leave feeling you've had value for money, as it's nit the cheapest. So here's the but. Why is it... More

The place has a very good atmosphere. The staff are professional and the food extremely tasty and well presented. If you prefer to people watch the bar tables are ideal, although the through traffic may become distracting. Good choice of beer and a wine lovers dream, choice is vast. If you want to run a foodie pub, this is the... More

Forth visit over the past year. Thing for me here is that you get the relaxed atmosphere of a pub with the service and food in line with a very decent restaurant. I go for evenings as I know lunch can get hectic. You can find some belters in the bin end wine collection.
