My girlfriend and I came here on our first ever proper date and I was looking for somewhere neither of us had been before. It was a Saturday night and I booked through the restaurant website, our preferred time of 7:30pm was unfortunately fully booked so we went at 6:30pm instead, which wasn't a problem. When we arrived the restaurant... More

I went here for dinner with my partner and we were pleasantly surprised with our experience. The service was great, we were seated in the bar with a glass of wine each then brought up to our table when it was ready. We both had three courses and each was better than the last. This place definitely needs more recognition... More

Booked on line, on the day very easy. Own car park with 18 spaces so parked easily . Lovely interior and friendly greeting. We had a 2.30 table which probably is not the best time to go. Table under speaker on low setting but all you could hear was the Bass of some "nothing" music. Not sure it is required... More

We've wanted to try this restaurant for ages and finally did! Booked for a family of 5 to celebrate a wedding anniversary. After booking it, I read a less than favourable review from a foodie friend and worried it would be disappointing but it was pretty much faultless. A warm welcome, a good selection of lovely dishes to choose from.... More

We had previously visited prior to the change in management. I can safely the place is in good hands. Everything was perfect from starter to dessert. You have to try the bacon burger with bacon jam! yum yum yum. My wife had the belly of pork which must have been good as I didn't get a look in. For what... More

We love the atmosphere of this restaurant, with its old oak beams. It is a beautiful building inside and outside. The food we had was very well cooked however, the only fault we both found was that we didn't find our food particularly tasty. I had lemon & garlic chicken, but could not taste either, and my partner had lamb,... More
