Excellent food but lacking atmosphere

My partner described it as an upmarket Fawlty Towers. Harsh but sort of fair. The food was outstanding. We enjoyed three courses of first class, imaginative, reasonably priced dinner. Not a false step in any of the cooking. Although the side order of chips were clearly frozen 'cheap' chips... read more

We dined as a couple on a Saturday night for a change. The food was good and the staff were friendly but it seriously lacked atmosphere, if there was just some background music I think that would have helped. I would go again but it needs a bit of cheer..

This restaurant never fails to live up to our expectations. Having dined here on special occasions over the past fifteen years, the food and staff, as usual were wonderful.

The food here is excellent, my partner and I chose from the set menu which was great value for money, £20 for three courses, everything on there looked delicious. The staff were professional and the service was good if a little slow on this occasion. The restaurant itself is cosy and spacious with plenty of room between the tables, the... More

Ham hock was off. Lamb was off, the belly of pork was off. The vegetarian choice was down to one. We booked specially for a good meal. We didn't get one. The excuse? We are running down our menu in order to change it. What about the wine? That is also being run down. If I had known I wouldn't... More

Chilled out tunes and amazing decor. The food was incredible. Gluten free options were fantastic. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Excellent value for money.

This is a very comfortable restaurant in the city centre, with good parking facilities. The food is excellent and imaginative. However, the service is unhelpful, inattentive and slow. It may be they we under-staffed, but surely this can be easily addressed?

We have been here twice and both times the service was very poor.We were hoping it might have improved on the second occasion but sadly not.This is a real shame as the food here is very good and we would love to come more often if the service was better. The kitchen staff are clearly trying hard to build a... More

I took my family here for lunch and we had a good meal. It had been recommended to me and didn't disappoint. Good selection of food for everyone's taste, apparently the meat dishes and puddings were good, as was my vegetarian option. It was all very reasonable, good choices of drinks etc and everyone was happy, we'd return.

I haven't stayed there but we had a great three course lunch for a family gathering. Plenty of choice to suit our group of different ages and it was delicious. (mind you, whcih age group doesn't love sticky toffee pudding...?)
