An amazing meal. We didn't get the Thai fishcakes because the chef accidentally dropped them. He didn't want to keep us waiting so we had the scallops instead, amazing. Everything about this restaurant was perfect, right down to the lighting .

We were staying in our motorhome near the Abbey and wanted to eat out. This place is very special and even provides an amuse bouche (spelling?!!) which for us was french onion soup with magnificent home made bread. Our meals were superb and worth being a little more expensive due to it's really fine dining. And if you select off... More

Visited with wife and little baby in her pram, when she was very small. We could not fault the service and ambience in the restaurant, really lovely, Memorable peawn cocktail, but only 4 stars becase for me the steak wa not the best, probably well sourced locally and well cooed, just not to my taste. Overall thoroughly recommended!

9 of us came here to celebrate a 21st and 30th birthday and it far exceeded my, already high, expectations. The food was very fresh and delicious, the staff were attentive and friendly and the environment was relaxing. Everyone left feeling happy and satisfied, which can be hard work with such a large group of varying diets and tastes. I'll... More

A family celebration for two milestone birthdays: 30th and 21st. The food was delicious. The service and welcome were excellent. They really looked after us and made the evening very special. Would certainly go again.

We ate here during the Cheltenham festival. The restaurant was warm and cosy on arrival. Service was friendly and attentive. The menu has some good twists on some old favourites. The pork with souffle was delicious! Well worth a visit.
