Very good but no high chairs

We went out on bank holiday Monday and got turned away from two other local restaurants so thought we'd give the Thai restaurant a try. The staff were helpful and friendly although there were no high chairs for our toddler who had to sit on my lap. Nevertheless, we had a tasty meal and were... read more

Do not be put off by the front or side of this building. Inside is a delightful restaurant quite unlike the entry which one has to contend with. We ate on two nights, enjoying both the English and Thai menus and indeed blending both together. Glad we booked ahead on the Saturday night as it was very busy. We were... More

What a friendly quirky place, the food is superb both English and Thai. As a big foodie I can hands down say this is the best roast dinner I have ever had, I would highly recommend!!!! Don't be put off by the bar area as the restaurant and garden are lovely, enjoy 😄

We were staying near the pub so decided to have a take away one night. Good service and friendly people. Thai food was good too. We had planned on eating in the pub too but was put off by the huge TV which was turned up loud so didn't fancy eating there. (We didn't check to see if the dining... More

Finding the restaurant was our first challenge as we had to walk through a crowded bar! We expected midweek in January to be quiet but we were disappointed to find we were the only diners, which meant there was also no real atmosphere. We were allowed plenty of time to choose from the extensive menu whilst nibbling on the prawn... More
