I had a very enjoyable dinner here earlier this week and strongly recommend the restaurant if you are looking for a relaxing evening with good food. I did not have a reservation so I ended up eating in the bar, which was absolutely fine. The staff was very friendly and service is efficient. The menu is not extensive but there... More

...after reading the reviews was expecting a lot more. Not particularly disappointed but not particularly wowed. Friendly staff, (apart from the blonde barmaid who needs to be sent on a course to teach her how to smile), OK atmosphere and above average food make this place pleasant enough but not outstanding enough to make me want to go out of...

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor decided to give this place a try and was not disappointed. Service was great and the food lovely. Loved the fillet steak with pepper sauce (although thought was bit pricey at £29) and dessert was a delight. Was made even nicer as my daughter and her partner had got engaged the day before. Will definitely... More

First visit to this restaurant. Surroundings are good. Food is nicely presented and we all agreed quite tasty. The staff make it an average rating. Left waiting too long for drinks order, and food order. Had to ask for bill at the end. Not a busy restaurant so no excuse. Waitress mostly enjoyed dancing behind the bar. Bit of a... More

Better than a previous visit in January but not much had changed on the menu.No specials on offer.Food was very good and well presented. Staff very polite, initially attentive but less so as the night wore on. Friend asked for G&T which never came, had to ask for our bill.
