We have been to this restaurant a number of times and we feel it only gets better. We were warmly greeted by the staff and by the lovely open fire which was welcomed on such a cold night. The restaurant was almost full on a midweek night, in January. However the layout of the tables allowed there to be plenty... More

This is obviously a well liked restaurant, which is shown by the fact that every table was booked. The menu had a good selection and there was a good choice on the wine list. Reasonable value

What a wonderful place, fantastic decorations for Christmas which shed a warm glow around the restaurant. The waiting staff very observant but unobtrusive. Attention to detail and nothing too much trouble. Will definitely be going again.

It was my 60th on 16th Dec. and my husband booked a meal in the evening. It was totally enjoyable and relaxed. Staff could not do enough for us and the restaurant was lovely. We had 3 courses and every dish was delicious. The homemade bread was amazing. I had pork and Apple terrine with ciabatta- super. Hubby had fish... More

The restaurant is lovely, very romantic and charming. But best of all is the food. It's not cheap but well worth paying a little extra to experience a... More

Welcoming friendly smile and a offering of a drink, such a lovely first 30 seconds before the evening had even started. Absolutely beautiful food and the service was wonderful! Would definitely recommend and visit again soon!

Sunday lunch was very much enjoyed by myself, daughter and partner. A very good menue. A warm greeting by staff accompanied by a roaring open fire. The service and food were all faultless and good value for money. A lovely afternoon.
