Booked the restaurant having read the TA reviews and we were not disappointed. The menu is extensive and varied with the early bird fixed price options very good and excellent value. We went for the latter and the food was really well cooked and well presented. The service was friendly and very welcoming - if only other restaurants were so... More

Lovely, quaint little restaurant! Was not quite sure what to expect but after eating there then getting home and reading the other reviews, I can see why it's so highly recommended! The service was welcoming and attentive from the word go! While the decor is simple and understated, it by no means leaves this restaurant lacking in character and intimacy!... More

This is the third time I've been to the go down and every time it's been great. Very good, polite and attentive service and more importantly really nice well cooked food. We had the early bird fixed price menu tonight which is varied and good value, between us we had three different starters, three different mains and two different puddings... More

Just what we wanted, great food with variety. Handy location. Friendly staff. Reasonably prices and lovely atmosphere. You could easily miss the place but this is why I love trip advisor. So you can find a real gem

We booked the early bird special for 6.00pm before going to the Theatre which is just across the road. The service was excellent and the food choice for an early bird special was very good . We had one starter which we shared and two main courses and a bottle of wine for £50. We will definitely be going back... More

Went early evening (6:30) on the basis of other reviews and was not disappointed. Only one other group eating at this early time. Excellent service and very tasty dishes off the fixed price menu which were good value. Easy to pass the entrance by as it's not very noticeable on the outside but good environment inside. will go again.
