Visited as party of seven on Saturday night for a family birthday meal. Food and service was really good. Staff were polite and efficient and food orders arrived reasonably promptly and quality was very good. This was our first visit and we really couldn't fault anything other than one minor comment that the maple and pecan tart for one desert... More

Things didn't start well when we were told to hold on a minute as we arrived. We waiited 10 minutes before anybody actually spoke to us. When they finally spoke to us we said were with a group and they said we were the first and left us sat in the entrance. Another 5 minutes later they offered us a... More

Went to the Old Cottage for lunch and took advantage of the £9.50 two-course deal. As well as the lunch menu, there was a specials menu which formed part of the deal. I had chili con carne and nachos which came with sour cream and a salad garnish. It was not a huge portion thankfully (I was looking forward to... More

Had to pre book what we wanted to eat which, for me, spoilt the eating out experience a bit. As we were a group of about 12 we were put upstairs in a corner. At times we felt like it was hard to get waiter attention for refills etc. Long way from the loo too. Id heard fab reports of... More

On a friends recommendation we booked for a table of four on Thursday evening. On arrival we had a warm friendly welcome and were soon settled at our table. The menu choices were amazing and was so difficult to eventually decide on what to order. We we did order the food was soon in front of each of us in... More

Mothering Sunday. Lovely food, quick service, felt a bit rushed but understandable. Asked for extra scoop of ice cream was told it was an extra cost of £1 (Fair enough I supposed) then it arrived. IT WASNT THE SIZE OF AN EGG! Seriously. Smaller than an egg. Very disappointed.

Came here with my partner and friends, as part of an evening out and WOW was i pleased we did! By far the best food I have ever eaten! The beef was tender and melt in the mouth, the sauce was not overly rich and complimented the perfectly cooked beef wonderfully, and the mash was amazing!! The service and surroundings... More

Went here with a very large group of friends, we had all pre ordered from a varied, 'early bird' set menu and none of us were disappointed. Some members of our group changed their mind last minute but the staff were happy to accommodate and were highly organised. The timing for all courses was perfect for such a large group.... More
