Staff were Ok, nothing special to mention about and our drinks were delivered in a timely manner. Ordered the Sticky... More

Can't say we were welcomed with open arms it felt like we had intruded. The greeting by a man in a suit was professional in every way but not friendly. We... More

Visited for lunch with friends. The welcome was friendly. The menu was varied and reasonably priced. Our order arrived in good time. My duo of lamb was great, a pot of lamb stew and slices of tasty lamb. The belly of pork was tasty, sausage trio was much enjoyed. Desserts were very tasty, and we had a great time discussing...

Visited here recently without booking. Both the starters and main courses were really tasty and the portions were generous, no room for pudding! It is slightly on the pricey side but I felt the quality justified it.
