Well it certainly was, from the stylish bar upstairs where we had our pre dinner drink and canapés to the tasteful dinning room. Starters & main course were both good size portions and very well prepared, be both had pork which is often either over or undercooked, this was perfect with crispy crackling. We couldn’t really eat a desert but... More

The initial service and provision of pre-dinner drinks was very slow but eventually the orders were taken. There was a ‘special’ main on offer of one of the cheapest cuts of pork but it was served with crackling which is one of my favourites. I asked for extra crackling as I enjoy it; I have often asked for an extra... More

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

Isn't it wonderful when a restaurant you have never been to before turns out to be absolutely fabulous? We were very very priivledged to spend the first part of our New Year's Eve celebrations in Chris and Lisa's beautiful and intimate restaurant on Boroughbridge's market place. We needed to eat early as we were attending the nightwatch service at Ripon... More
