However with the tables set and candles lit it looked lovely when we arrived that evening. We shared a platter to start which was fantastic with plenty food for 2. My partner had Jennings... More

Service was great, two lovely staff serving behind the bar and waiting on. A bit of a wait on food if I'm being picky but a large table were in... More

Visited and reviewed this establishment before.A little concerned that had fallen down the TA reviews but I had always rated this place. Noticed the website did not contain menus as advertised , now realise perhaps a sign of slipping standards.. Checked opening times on website and duly arrived on a Monday night to see the place was firmly closed.We had... More
