For the mains I had the pulled pork burger(delicious) my wife had the seabass with shrimp risotto which... More

Dropped in with my customers to discuss business and grab a bite to eat. The place is very clean, greeted with a smile and very polite staff. Food choice was good. Very tasty Thai Curry, possibly the best I have tasted. We will visit again. Thank you.

It's a nice cosy restaurant that offers very decent fare and a fair price. For me probably not in the same league as the Foxham Inn or White Horse at Compton Bassett but still very decent and for this level of dinning probably as good as anything in Chippenham. Definitely going back there and also worth a mention that the... More

I then had Sea Bass with what was described as brown shrimp risotto. The fish was nice but the risotto was basically unseasoned boiled rice with a couple of shrimp,... More

I thought that as a precaution I better pre-book a table for myself, a colleague and 2 German visitors on a first visit to the UK. Good job I did as for cold a Tuesday evening in October the restaurant was full. Bearing I mind that one of the guests was 6'10" the table had plenty of room. The food... More

Went up to Gladstone on a Saturday without booking (mistake) staff incredibly accommodating and fitted us in even though they were busy. Had the Burger with pulled pork and it was amazing,and the portion was unbelievable. All round 5 star experience.
