We had a superb meal on Saturday in the private dining room. The service and food was spot on. All my guests called or emailed on Sunday to say how much they enjoyed it. This is the third time I have used the private dinning room and every time it has been faultless, hope I have cause to celebrate again... More

Went for my Father-in-Law's birthday celebration. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was convivial and the service was spot on. All four of us ordered different things and every one was delighted with their choices. A very enjoyable dining experience, and one that I'm very much looking forward to repeating.i can't imagine why we'd never gone there before!

A group of four of us enjoyed a three course lunch from the set menu, plenty of choice on the menu. We all really enjoyed the food, the quality and presentation were great. The restaurant is a nice size and the tables are not too close together, it has a relaxed atmosphere and the staff were great. Would definitely go... More

This restaurant proved to be very suitable for my disabled wife. It has ample car parking opposite and level access to the main dining room. The Sunday lunch menu was sensibly short and our party of four were all pleased with their choices. The smartly dressed staff were pleasant and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The restaurant is... More

We hired the private dining room for a party saturday night (Oct 4th). It was a family dinner to celebrate our wedding, for those who couldnt make our wedding (in Sweden). The staff were fantastic, allowing me to drop off flowers and cakes during the day, and then setting it up for the 6pm sitting. They served champagne to our... More

I took my husband here to this weekend (5th October) to celebrate the fact he'd proposed to me a year ago at the same place! We weren't disappointed. The crayfish, prawn & king prawn starter was plentiful and flavourful. It was presented well and had lots of the fish meats listed, with the sauce complimenting the meal perfectly. My husband...

We hired the private dining room for lunch yesterday for 22 family members (a Saturday). We had a delicious, unhurried 3 course lunch. The 2 children were admirably looked after. The staff were unflappable and everyone(!) agreed that it was faultless. Thank you so much for a rare experience!

I should have written a review sooner since we have been holding family celebrations here over the last couple of years. However we recently celebrated my Dad's 80th Birthday here at his request and once again had a wonderful time. The staff are so attentive, they listen to your requests before booking, ensure that you never feel rushed whilst you... More

Excellent food, excellent wine, excellent service. A real treat. I had crab to start and lamb rump for mains. Both were exceptional. Go to this restaurant!
