Four of us went on Saturday night - Booked at 7'30. Apart from their giving us the draughtiest table in the place, the welcome was friendly and attentive. Menu hasn't changed much for a while but there's something for everyone. The starters were fine and the main pancake and salmon were declared excellent, but my blade of beef was tasty... More

We booked a table on a Saturday night. Haven't been for a few years. Value for money. Well presented food. Hubby had T bone steak which he enjoyed and I had the Confit of duck which was equally as good! Will definitely be going back.

Perfect service and some very good food...yet again. This place has never let us down. My salmon and chive mash was cooked perfectly and my wife's braised beef was rich and flavoursome.

We have been many times to this restaurant, and always enjoy our meals here. We travel by train from Birmingham, because it is worth the trip. Friendly welcome, relaxed atmosphere. A nice touch is the lovely bread and olives, which are complementary. Food is cooked fresh to order, and we've always found it to be good quality. Good value for... More

Great lunch with my mum, wife and daughter. Fantastic service and quality food, that's why we keep going back. Salmon, lamb, beef and pork were all enjoyed as main courses. The lunch menu is good value for 2 or 3 courses. It is best to book as it is popular and can get busy.
