Fabulous Food

We went here for the first time and enjoyed a very delicious three course meal (one of us being vegetarian) . We will certainly be returning. The staff were very warm and welcoming, the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and the food is definitely some of the finest you can get in the area.

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening with a Groupon voucher. We booked for 7pm. We were greeted by one of the owners who took us to our table talked to us about the menu, what their aims were regarding the restaurant and told us a funny story about the salmon falling out of the chimney. (They smoke salmon... More

We went for lunch on a miserable cold and wet January day. And we left smiling and happy. The food is adventurous: scallops with ham hock terrine and Jacobs Ladder a home smoked beef rib with red pepper ketchup. Followed by monkfish medallions with a semi deconstructed Niçoise salad and pork belly confit with peanut crusted prawns and a medley... More

Food was good, but not a lot of it. Atmosphere was a bit lacking, host tried but something was missing. Lots of locals there though.

We dined last Friday using a Groupon voucher. We were expecting pub grub as we had been to the Crooked Billet years ago. However, the menu and surroundings suggested an up-market restaurant. Our starters were delicious, crispy hens egg and wild rabbit and guinea fowl terrine followed by a superb sirloin steak and duck breast. Outstanding! Oh - and the... More

As we are very local (walking distance) we thought we would have sunday lunch here instead of at home. Very nice.

Dropped in for lunch today after seeing the pub was under new management. The team were very happy to modify the main course bar menu for my son and were extremely friendly and engaging. A very pleasant atmosphere, not stuffy or "clicky" at all. After a very pleasant couple of hours we left full and satisfied with the size and... More

Had a lovely meal here last night.The food was very good, well presented with some flair, it looks like the chef really cares about the plates of food that are served. The menu had plenty of choice even for me, the choices were pleasantly different. I would have not hesitate in going back again, soon.

We were a party of six and haven't been to this restaurant for a long time. The food was well presented and tasty. Unfortunately three of our party chose the beef fillet and although beautifully cooked the portion size was very small. This was the only criticism. The staff were very good and attentive.
