Birthday lunch

First visit to the Inn since it has been refurbed etc and a very enjoyable one. Lovely seating area outside for good weather but we went inside to sit in very pleasant surroundings and decor. Loved the very large mirrors and wall decorations. Friendly greeting as we walked thru door and seated by... read more

Have heard great things in the past about the food here, so decided to have a meal outside in the nice weather. The staff were incredibly pleasant, the surroundings were modern and clean and the outside area was perfect for what we wanted. The menu didn't exactly deliver however. I wanted something light such as a salad yet there didn't... More

Meal for two with starters and dessert can easily top £100 with a bottle of wine. For that you get average pub grub food with slow service. The surroundings are nice enough but the owners have ideas well above their station. There are far better restaurants in the local area - if pub grub is your thing there are much... More

Me and my partner came here to check out the 2 course menu our friends had recommended. I had the home made chicken liver pate for my starter which was absolutely perfect. For my main I had the cajun chicken with chips and salad, however as I don't really eat chips, the lovely manager changed them for garlic bread. This... More

It is so refreshing to find a restaurant where all of the food is cooked on the premises rather than plastic food reheated in a microwave. We have been to this restaurant many, many times and have never been disappointed. It is a fair drive away from our home but worth every mile to eat brilliant food in clean and... More

Had the salmon duo main course. Both types of salmon were dry and overcooked, mashed potato was OK, fennel was awful, prawn mousseline tasted disgusting and sliced tomato OK. The meal was dry and unpalatable and was desperate for a sauce. The combination of components of the meal just didn't work. Ate the meal and didn't make a fuss on... More

Light and airy interior. Friendly, smart and efficient staff. Carvery was excellent; choice of beef, pork or turkey. Roast potatoes were roast and not just sunburnt as we have had in other places locally. Boiled potatoes were of a perfect texture and had a lovely taste. Not a fan of cauliflower cheese, so gave that a miss. Topped off with... More

I visited as a part of five on a Friday evening. The venue, staff and service were all reasonably good and the waiters very polite. The food itself was not good and really let down what we had hoped to be a great meal. One of our starters was wrong, and the restaurant did realise that and apologise- so that... More
