I recently came here on a date and was pleasantly surprised. I'd never heard of this restaurant before but had a look on-line and it looked good; and I liked the fact they updated the menu everyday on the website. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. I opted for the Duck Breast which was really well cooked and it... More

I guess this must not be my kind of pub though. The food was yummy but all just a little too posh and pricey. I have been several... More

Surprisingly empty for the Saturday before Christmas. But we had a very enjoyable lunch. Starter of goats cheese truffles followed by venison on a bed of red cabbage. Very good food and service. Well decorated for Christmas

Absolutely fabulous! Took ages to get food but worth the wait. Good buzz, restaurant full, food delicious. Best restaurant around this area I have to say. Roast beef to die for ! Grilled prawns wonderful. Too full for a dessert.

Every year close to Christmas my siblings and I go for dinner instead of buying each other presents - essentially we buy a memory. This year we went to the bell. The atmosphere was great, and the food - as always - really... More
