Lovely restaurant, not your every day run of the mill restaurant. The service is professional yet friendly and they make the extra special effort by putting a birthday card on the table and writing happy birthday o the dessert plate for my Mum. Food is excellent. It's a little expensive but that's what makes it a great place for a... More

I don't often get "sucked in" by specials, but this evening I did. Black pudding and pear starter with a fried egg - wow!! Whole plaice - divine. My wife had crab and then Duck and said they were as gorgeous as they looked. Sweet was a variety of sorbets for me and a lemon artic roll for Jane- again... More

I took my wife here for her recent birthday. We have been at lunch time twice, but never in the evening. Both times previously we have thought it excellent. The dining area is great, particularly on a warm evening, as they open the bi-fold doors onto an enclosed courtyard area. There was a great buzz to the restaurant all evening.... More

Very attentive staff who get the balance just right. All of the food was lovely, would have liked a little more veggie choice. Bit pricey, but quality and environment is great.

One server picked up a comment we made about the soup. He had asked if it was alright and we said "it was not just alright, it was excellent". He claimed to be good at picking up such comments so he was invited to return after the steak had arrived so he could pick up what was said then. He... More

Three of us went here for my birthday and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is pleasant and informal, and the aircon was a welcome relief on England's hottest day for 6 years! We were served by attentive but not over-intrusive staff. The food - especially the local venison - was mostly excellent and beautifully presented. I had one of... More

A lovely venue with attentive staff. A good set menu. excellent starter and pudding but the quality of the roast vegetables with the main course were not good. I believe because they were out of season. Overall though a very enjoyable Father's Day treat.
