My partner and I visited the restaurant with my mother as part of a week of celebrating her 90th birthday. We could really have done without the unruly children running through the restaurant from the pub garden. I ordered salmon with a cream sauce. It was well-presented, but the first mouthful was, at best, warm. The next portion wasn't even... More

As ever, Good food served by lovely staff. Super friendly, and very attentive. Relaxed atmosphere, making this an ideal venue if you are looking for a night out with your friends listening to live music, or a quick drink in the sun with your family- children included. Whether you are a local or here on holiday I highly recommend this... More

The food was quite nice here, I had a homemade Chilli which had good flavour and reasonablly priced. The restuarant was decorated fairly well with a chilled atmosphere but the big let down was the 1hr wait for food! It was a Thursday night and not even that busy. The staff didnt seem too concerned about it so it turned... More

The outside of the pub lets the inside of this pub down, don't let the outside deter you from going in. The food here is superb and plenty of it, it was piping hot. The service here is excellent. We had the Sunday Lunch Menu, two courses for £12.95 or three for £15.95. The Sunday Lunch menu doesn't only consist... More

Brought the grandparents here for dinner and was a bit apprehensive as the outside doesn't really do it justice. Inside is quite stylish and good outdoor seating and small play area for children. Staff very friendly, great selection of food for adults and children. Lovely fresh fish, great steaks, well presented and good portion size. In fact we came again... More

We used to come here every Sunday but it started to become inconsistent, we guess there is a high turnover of kitchen staff. We came on Sunday, it used to be bustling but it was dead, service was good, young girl did her best but the food was awful. I had tomato and mozzarella salad to start (can't go wrong... More

This place looks quite nice inside but with hardly any punters on a Saturday evening (We did wonder!!) there was no atmosphere. We were a group of 7 out celebrating a birthday.The starters were lacking in flavour. One of the mains did not arrive until the rest of us had finished. The Duck had no sauce and was overcooked and... More

Eaten here a few times now, not a massive restaurant area yet seemed to be left for to long before drinks and god orders taken. Both times I've gone for the curry on their curry nights- yummy I must say. Will return again.
