It has a great view, and the atmosphere is always warm and friendly. The lunch was for my birthday, and they even sent in a... More

The manager seemed stressed and disorganised. We were only offered a drink once and had to ask several times for other... More

We visited this as part of an Amazon local deal. Lovely restaurant, nicely furnished in a comfortable yet contemporary style. We choose the four course tasting menu starting with an onion veloute with an onion bargee. The fish course was Rye Bay scallops and squid in a risotto. The main course was pork belly and turnip. The dessert was a... More

We had the six course menu as it was... More

Took my daughter for afternoon tea as a treat and it really was a treat. Arrived, not in the best of moods, as the satnav took us on a very interesting journey. It didn't take long to lift our spirits. The staff were absolutely delightful and friendly. The food appeared simple, but was really delicious. There were three different sandwiches... More
