For main, my partner and i had the fillet steak which melted in your mouth. The atmosphere was good and the staff were very... More

Went for lunch this week and tried the 3 course menu for £11.95. I thought the choice was good although I am very easily pleased and could quite easily have gone for most options. Very happy with my chicken and anchovie cesaer salad starter, salmon on dill mash and lemon tart. Service was very friendly and efficient. Generous portion sizes... More

I had the smoked haddock, my wife and daughter both had the salmon. Everyone agreed that the food was very well presented and exceptionally tasty. The deserts were excellent too. The service was efficient, polite and nothing was too much trouble. A memorable experience.

We had a family Birthday / Bon Voyage Party for my sister. We were all very impressed with the food and the service. It's so nice to be served by friendly, efficient staff who really make you feel welcome, and are happy in their work. This was my second visit there and it won't be my last.
