Expensive but good

Came for a special Valentine's meal, and just managed to get a booking. Place was heaving, but we didn't have to wait too long for service. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff. Very good food, but possibly not worth the very high price tag - way beyond what we would normally pay for a meal out!

Arrived at 1pm, left after 4pm and in all that time had only main course, desert and tea. Had to chase up menus after 45 minutes as had been ignored all that time. Food order taken by 2pm but nothing appeared for a further 30 minutes - great food when it arrived but over a 90 minutes wait for it.... More

The food here was of a very high standard, however it was let down by the service at the bar. Even when we ordered drinks through our waitress there was a very long wait, two of the drinks that arrived were wrong and had to be changed adding to the wait, then one of the replacement drinks was served in...

I have been here a few times over the years. I am unsure if there are new owners, but the food was absolutely brilliant. A wonderful variety of choices and the service was great. The restaurant is clearly doing very well at present as there were no free tables which created a lovely ambiance. Definitely recommend!!

Nearly £4 for a pint of bitter a bit OTT. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Overall... More

Food was superb with a wide variety of dishes, not the cheapest but def worth the little bit extra! We were a group of 8 & although we were upstairs all our food pretty much came at the same time.

We went on Saturday night with friends and were given a lovely positioned table in the conservatory type restaurant. The service was perfect and quick and so friendly, a lovely greeting when we arrived which makes all the difference. The portions were large even the starters and the food delicious, duck lettuce wraps were very tasty and the fish and... More

I was recommended to eat here when staying nearby and I was not disappointed. The menu's varied and there was a good choice of specials, with the food nicely presented. There's a good selection of beers, ales and wines and the surroundings are rustic, charming and comfortable. The service was attentive and friendly, so overall a very good meal and... More
