Great food at a fair price. Slightly limited menu, but enough variety for most. Enjoyed a meal on Friday night, the atmosphere was great and so was the service. Would visit again.

Went for the very first time for an early Father's Day Lunch. Chose the Cod on noodles dish. The cod was over cooked and tasted of nothing. After complaining , the staff could only say that they would pass our comments on to the chef. Later we saw patrons at the next table being served the same dish but portions... More

Nice environment and very pleasant and helpful staff. Sadly the food was not the same. Clearly much use made of microwave, food presented well but rather tasteless. Puddings very stodgy and fresh from the microwave ! Expensive too

We visited on a Sat night at the first sitting (6pm). Shown upstairs but then an uncomfortable wait on the stairs as the waitress identified our table. Starters were Whitebait, Chicken Liver Parfait and Pork Dumplings. All well presented Pork Dumplings slightly bland. Mains: venison, stuffed mushrooms and sirloin steak. All appropriately priced and delicious. Children ate from the kids... More

Dropped in Sunday lunchtime, was quite busy and just managed to get a table at 2pm. Initial service a bit slow but very friendly. Could have had a choice of roasts but went for the al a carte. Chicken kromeskies (breast wrapped in bacon and batter) and the pork and ginger dumplings were very good. The kofte kebab was substantial,... More

The food was decent and a good price if ordering from the prix fix menu. Staff were generally friendly. I was very surprised that there was no baby change facilities at all - I had to change my daughter in her pram in the restaurant, not ideal at all (good job it was only a wet nappy!) Also most of...
