We dined here on a Wednesday night. First time we have visited. I ordered the trio of British beef and my friend ordered the coconut curried chicken. They were absolutely beautiful. The trio was on a gorgeous sauce, on a bed of mash with 3 really nice pieces of steak. Presentation was spot on. Service was good. Some of the... More

Visit was a Saturday night out with friends and family in a party of 7. Food was up to the usual high standard with plenty of it. Unlike other restaurants all the courses were of a high standard including the starter and dessert. Service was great and cost of meal was very reasonable. Highly recommended.

The food was fantastic with a good selection of beers also available, the service was also... More

Visited with a group of 11, mixture of adults and babies. Sunday afternoon, table was ready and clean. Food came out quite quickly for a Sunday, starters were nice, main was delicious and puddings were moreish. Only annoying point is they do not do a mixed grill: strange. Anyway, would (and do) visit often. Recommended.
