On the night we visited there was one other table occupied- meant good service but felt a tad soulless. Food was nice, not amazing, felt that something needed a bit of a make-over.

Starters fine. Braised beef was nice but tiny portion and thought the wee bowl it was presented in was pointless. My husband enjoyed the pasta. wasn't asked if we wanted any sauces or more drinks when given our mains. Had to wait till waiter came back nearly 10 minutes later to ask if all was ok, I got what I...

This is the second time we have eaten here, this time as a group for a birthday celebration. We were well looked after, staff very attentive despite another large party having a meal too. The food I cannot fault and can speak on behalf of other members in our group. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a really nice... More

We went for a family meal here tonight. Firstly the service was first class, I had my 6 year old with us and was informed that although there was no kids menu they would do a half portion of whatever she wanted, she wanted Mac cheese and it wasn't on the menu but it was no problem to be made...

I reviewed this restaurant a while ago and I think I gave it 4 stars. This time I'm upping my stars to 5 as my girls night out there last night was fantastic. We had a table for 5 in a cosy alcove with comfortable leather chairs, crisp white table cloth and attentive friendly service. I had smoked fish on... More

Very impressed with both service & food at the dining room. The server was very pleasant and helpful. Food was 10/10. Three of us had the three course set menu for £12.95. Great value for money as we all thoroughly enjoyed every course. The penne pasta with beef & chillies is outstanding if u like a bit of spice and... More

Had to delay our visit by about an hour and the restaurant were very happy to do this at short notice. Plus points already! Very friendly relaxed atmosphere. All staff lovely and attentive. The food was some of the best I have had. I am not a foodie but know a good meal when I eat one. Will be back.
