This was a family birthday lunchtime meal & when we arrived at about 2.15, there was very little room in the car park - it was packed! We were greeted at the door & shown to the bar area where we were offered a drink. The table was ready & we were seated on time. There was a good choice... More

When we entered the restaurant we were first seated in the lounge area and had a drink while perusing the menu. For starters, we ordered 2 seafood tempura and a chicken liver parfait. For mains, we ordered turkey, beef sirloin and... More

Went as a family for my granddaughters 18th on Christmas Eve, we had a long table for 12 in a space on our own. The food, service and ambiance were brilliant. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion. They changed Christmas crackers and decorations for girlie decorations. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

My Wife and I celebrated our 57th Wedding Anniversary with a Champagne Breakfast and we were not disappointed. The whole meal was very enjoyable. The service good, with pleasant waiters.

Despite making a mess of my booking (I booked for the wrong day), they were able to squeeze us in on an obviously busy night for which I am thankful. The food was wonderfully cooked and presented with a variety of quality fresh ingredients. There were some excitingly different presentations. Kate, our server was pleasant and attentive despite it being... More
