Visited on a friday lunchtime and had the three courses £12 deal which really is excellent value for money. The food was nice and the restaurant has a chilled vibe. The only critique is the vegetarian choice is limited. The house red wine is also very nice will visit again.

Me and my partner went here for a lunch meal on a Friday and from the minute we arrived the service was slow, unprofessional and seemed very rushed, we got bread on arrival and despite being very good and free it doesn't take away from the fact it's shop brought baguette sliced up. Our roast garlic on our platter was... More

We had some vouchers for free wine which helped make this a great value Sunday lunch with friends. The three course lunch, for £12.95, was however good value on its own merit - the free wine just added to that! The food was tasty, portion size was good and they are flexible in allowing you to change side items if... More

As this is quite a popular restaurant I expected the food to be excellent however the whole family we're a bit disappointed with the food- meat was chewy and meals we're flavourless. Inside is very quaint however small, it's a job to walk through never mind navigate a pushchair. Was an OK meal but would choose to dine here again.

My wife, Mother, Farther and I frequent this wonderful restaurant. I have never had any problems with booking a table, the food is always of a high quality and the drinks are equally enjoyable. Only wish they had lager on top. By making a vist to this restaurant you will not be disappointed especially if they have the pigeon. Exquisite.
