Stopped on here on the way to our hotel, as we have done a couple of times before. We were not disappointed. It was throwing it down and few people were out, so the restaurant was quiet, but the service was pleasant and attentive and the food really good. We had the lunch meany, 2 courses, good value and ample.... More

Visited in August for a family meal- and was disappointed as our waitress was not attentive, and let the establishment down somewhat.. She did not suite this class of restaurant. Main meal portion was generous- and the filet steaks were very tasty. However My pudding had a hair in the middle- which ruined my meal completely, the owner offered to... More

I'd travelled past this pub/restaurant many times and, from the outside, it always looked nice. Myself and my wife unexpectedly had a kid free evening and I suggested we give it a go. Rang up, reserved a table with an hour's notice (very friendly person on phone) and turned up. Inside nice posh pubby décor, we were acknowledged quickly, taken... More

Came with my girlfriend, had the steak and the chicken. The meals were cooked beautifully with delightful tastes and textures. Service was spot on and staff were very friendly and attentive. Young manager was excellent, as she recommended the perfect wine for our meals and even surprised my girlfriend with a thoughtful decorated plate. "Happy Birthday". All in all, one... More

Came for birthday meal, staff fine a little slow at plate clearing. Food tasty but lacking meat in the roast lamb. We asked for more and some very rare pieces were brought out. If I happened to pass I would go again but wouldn't make a special journey.

We were invited to join a friend and nine other diners for a birthday celebration last month. Not knowing the area, we did not know the this establishment. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. The decor was tasteful, the service relaxed, but attentive and patient (especially as we were a large group). The food was also of an excellent standard,... More

Our first visit to this little gem of a place, we booked for lunch and I can honestly say it was excellent and very good value. The staff were friendly and the service impeccable. The strawberry and basil sorbet omg!! We hope to return again soon.

Visited for the first time and got the first service menu (served 18:00 - 19:00) the food was excellent and served quickly. Fresh ingredients cooked perfectly. You simply cannot get 3 courses of that standard for under 20 quid anywhere else. Presentation was excellent and the decor is stylish and well thought out. Caught a glimpse of the Sunday lunch...

Went here for a post graduation celebration meal with my family. Service was very friendly and just the right level of attentive. There was a lovely selection of gin cocktails, which as I love gin suited me perfectly, although I did find the Apple Collins a bit too strong for my liking. My Dad had the berry one which was...
