Its the only restaurant I could say that I have been to that the portions was that small and the price was that big you did not feel full when you came out we had to make sandwiches when we came home what a disappointment

The menu is varied, the cooking is without complaint, mine host is not overpowering in what is without doubt a smaller venue. More than one meal has been enjoyed here, and though its always best to book, you may be lucky if you turn up on the night, but don't count on it!

Ticked all the stars as I could not find a fault with the place. It is what it is and does it well. Food was good, service excellent and the small selection of drinks was adequate.

We have just celebrated my husbands birthday with a fab meal in the Front Room. As ever, the hospitality was excellent, food was lovely and all finished off with Alan playing guitar. I should really discourage others from dining here in case I can't get a table !!!!

I recommend this place very highly. It's a small room with only about half a dozen tables, but the owners take a lot of care to prepare really excellent food. There is a good selection of things on the printed menu, and a specials board which is always tempting. Over the years I've had spaghetti, aubergine bake, vegetable hotpot and... More

We had a fantastic Italian Evening at the Front room with a lasagne better than I had ever tasted. Many people in our party commented on how delicious it was. It was served with home-made garlic bread and a rocket side salad which was very authentic. For dessert we had a beautiful home-made tiramisu. We were very well looked after.... More

Visited here 22nd November and had a lovely meal. Table is yours for the night. Nothing was too much trouble and I couldn't fault the food at all. Even serenade by the owner when he got his guitar out and strummed a few songs. In fact my friend and I were last to leave. Give it a go....you won't be... More

My husband and I found this restaurant by chance on our way home. The staff were very friendly and service was good. Our starters were lovely I had the Greek Salad and my husband had mackerel pâté, both were very good. For main course I had stiffado which although nice was a bit bland, it was quite different from any... More
