Unassuming gem

An evening out with friends at a restaurant in our local village ..food and service of the highest standards. Attentive and friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. Pricing and choice on the menu very competitive and contemporary but with a nice cosy setting.

Although very quiet the few times we have been here the service and standard of cuisine is top drawer. Pity you have to drive as it's a little out of the way. If you cold replicate this restaurant in town they would be quids in.

I have been here many many times over the years and this time it was for my special Birthday celebration. All age groups were catered for and a lovely time was had by one and all on a Sunday at lunchtime.

what a great restaurant. from start to finish the service is impeccable. the people who work there are friendly and welcoming and that really makes a difference. the building is beautiful, the décor is not modern but it is still bright and clean and a really enjoyable place to dine. the food was very good and great value for money...

I have read a recent review of this restaurant which was not only very negative but extremely lengthy! I can understand why said reviewer was eating alone! Four of us ate there last night for the first time, having just moved into the village. We couldn't fault anything from the food, service, atmosphere, etc. No, it's not the cheapest place... More

We have visited them regularly over the years and have always enjoyed excellent food and warm hospitality. The birthday party was a great success and... More
