Visited in August as a couple for dinner. Both the starters and mains were of good quality, as was the wine. Service was very good, would definitely return.

Seated in about 5 minutes (when half empty) Then 20 minutes to get a menu. It isn't fancy. Although it tries to be. But the service times are intolerable.

I was amazed at the portion size when the food came, my 2 teenage sons were overjoyed with their burger and an... More

We used to come here regularly attracted by good quality food and lovely service. The service now as lovely as ever but sadly the food is no longer edible. Who wants a salad tasting of cod liver oil or a beef Bourgonion full of grizzle accompanied by large chunks of uncooked carrots, For the first time i left the restaurant... More
