I had a lovely Antipasta starter followed by the lamb which was pretty ordinary,The deserts were all nice and food and wine very reasonably priced. This is a nice friendly restaurant but needs to think more about main courses.

I had an evening meal here and I found the atmosphere more of a cafe than a restaurant and I would probably enjoy eating here during the day. The menu was very small which may not suit some people. The starter was a prawn cocktail, which harked back to the 1980s. It was tasty but small and I felt it... More

We were made to feel very welcome in this lovely cafe. There was a delicious brunch menu and a selection of gorgeous homemade cakes. The evening menus looked very appealing and the hosts were very warm and welcoming. Even though we only stopped for coffee and cake other customers were enjoying some lovely dishes and the locals obviously visited regularly.... More

I always assumed (wrongly) that The Front Room was a cafe and not really a serious restaurant. Let me tell you, this little place is in fact a very nice restaurant indeed. Very welcoming and friendly service and excellent food and wine. Not particularly cosy or intimate, perhaps more of a coffee shop vibe, but still very good. We will... More

And nicer people you could not meet very nice atmosphere and simple food server by Alan with great... More

Ordered drinks and starters with friends. The hostess/waitress told us very rudely while serving our food that for future reference the front room was not just for alcohol consumption only to which we replied that we had ordered starters. Which were rubbish by the way. We were so annoyed with her attitude that we went to the castle bar for... More
