Have just returned from a relaxing lunch with friends. We enjoyed superb ale before and with the meal and all agreed that, throughout all courses, the quality was good, if a touch bland,maybe worth 7 or 8 out of 10. What was disappointing was the quantity, particularly with the mains. They all came with just a suggestion of vegetables but... More

Went here for valentines night and really enjoyed some amazing food and great service. Everything was prepared to order and cooked perfectly, do not expect fast food as a result. If you want your food quick then head to a fast food joint, if you appreciate decent food then you won't go wrong here. Service was attentive without being in... More

We visited via a Travelzoo deal which quoted 'two meals for £39 instead of £65'. In actual fact, you could get 3 courses for £56 so it wasn't quite as good a deal as we expected. The quality of the food was good, if not slightly small in portions. (Sticky Toffee Pudding was quite dry compared to (many) others we... More

We have not been for maybe a year as the menu and food had gone down hill but I had been informed the owners were back and so was the standard of the food. I promptly booked a table through their website which was easy, this was in the bar area as we were taking the dogs (if they can't... More

We were a party of 12 who visited this establishment for a group Sunday lunch. I have to say that we were disgusted by the attitude displayed by the female owner / manager to whom we complained about the portion sizes which we were given. We were told that "value is subjective" and suggested that we research the comparative prices... More
