Sat evening , Party of four, we sat upstairs for this our second visit , service was good but not over fussy, The focus is definately on food over suroundings although this little restaurant does not lack character. Always fully booked at weekends so book well in advance ! One of our party is a vegatarian and was pleasantly surprised... More

A group of work colleagues met here to eat and catch up. Food perfect, service perfect. We ate off the lunch menu and could not fault it. Try the home made chips, they are good. Very reasonably priced.

Excellent Quality of food. The staff was very friendly and polite. The food was very good value for money. I personally think the windows could had been frosted glass half way down just so you don't see the High Street, however that is a tiny personal opinion and everything else was excellent.

Absolutely loved this place. Small, no fuss, family environment with great haute cuisine quality and taste, freshest ingredients... Clearly the Chef is putting his heart and love into his creations. And don't worry you won't leave the place unsatisfied as the portions are definitely not haute cuisine:)

Called on a Wednesday evening with no reservation. Were informed it was Vegetarian night. Both my wife and myself had beetroot Carpaccio which was very good. We also had the same main course of summer vegetable hot pot which was excellent. I'm not that keen on either courgettes or sweet potatoe but loved this dish which had both in abundance.... More

With a menu of only 6 main dishes you would think the chef could estimate his stock better. Arriving at 9pm on a Saturday night we were greeted at our table with an opening line that the kitchen had ran out of the steak and the veggie option. With the majority of our table wanting steak we then set about... More
