Fabulous Valentine's menu, superb food, service & ambience. Chris & Lisa & their highly professional team do an amazing job, and are deservedly number 1 in Boroughbridge. Can't get for a return visit!

Again sounds simple but the chicken was... More

Called last minute for an Early Bird, sadly only 4 of us in the restaurant. This really is an under used Gem of a place. Superb starters of Prawns, followed by Belly Pork for me and Goats Cheese tartlet for my wife. We both had some of Chefs mince pie ice cream for desert. This place really is fantastic, both... More

As a local, I have eaten here a number of times and have always had a great experience. The food is fresh, local and beautifully cooked. The staff are welcoming, warm and helpful. The whole experience makes you feel that you have had a great night out.
