My only criticism of this place is that there is no sign advising wait here to be seated.

The place is huge with plenty of seating, I can safely say... More

We had a drink while choosing our meals from the large selection on the blackboard and then took our drinks to where we were sat - at a very good table looking out over the car park at the sunset and garden. After a reasonable time, our meals... More

We tend to use this restaurant for special occasions and once again it did not disappoint us. My daughter and her fiancé who were with us and use to fine dining were extremely impressed with the excellent quality of the food and service.

To update my review of 2012, the standards have been maintained, food prepared from fresh ingredients from an extensive menu, with friendly service. With the repeat trip -I recommend that you try it for yourself. Good size car park several rooms and outside tables too. Rooms can be booked for functions. Standard wine list and drinks menu.
