Have ate here numerous times. Lovely spot and one can eat al fresco when the weather obliges. The food has always been great and served nice and rustic. My only gripe is that when entering the premises it's not really clear whether one should go on ahead and sit down or wait to be approached by... read more

Myself, my girlfriend and my parents are all still in shock by the way we were treated on Saturday 20th June 2015 at this restaurant. It beggars belief. First of all there was no gin for our gin and tonics. Then we were served warm Chardonnay as a replacement. The chairs were like sinking sand they were that soft and... More

Thank you for your review, it beggars belief. So I, as the owner and chef who cooked your meal last Saturday, would like to address some of the points you have made, and mention some of the facts that you have omitted. 1. We indeed had run out of gin. The wonderful Music City 2015 festival was on last weekend.... More

Had night out with friends. Atmosphere lovely and service good but food was average and alcohol expensive. Desserts not great and one of us was given 2 scoops of ice cream and a strawberry sliced on it as a gluten free option!!

Lovely quirky pretty place. Great food: duck and black cherry salad and tomato and mozzarella salad for starters, then rib eye and chips, and chicken with new potato crush both with seasonal veg for mains. We shared a chocolate and chilli brownie and ice cream. Nice wine too. Really tasty food, friendly staff, lovely place. Would recommend.
