Saturday night in December. Booked some time in advance and took the 'second sitting'. Food was good, had the cheese and leek tart to begin, followed by the pork - which I felt was just slightly overlooked. Service good, sometimes a little direct. Went to Iris a few months ago and thought Iris had the edge.

Have eaten here several times and always have good service. The food is excellent and the atmosphere good. Not too expensive and suitable for families or intimate for couples. Well worth a visit :-)

We ate here last sat night and everything was great. It is perfect for family meal or with your other half. All our starters were nice and the T-bone steak was the best steak I have had in a long time. We sat upstairs which had a good balance of a atmosphere, not to busy or loud. Service was quick,...
