The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was really delicious, and also very well priced - we had three courses each plus a bottle of wine and got change from £50. Definitely recommended if you're looking for good choice, great food and a quiet, relaxing atmosphere.

A day with the kids and we decided to call in for some lunch. We were greeted and seated quickly. The food was superb and waitress was so nice and kind to the kids, as they take an age to decide what they want. Great service and tasty food. Thankyou.

Good service, atmosphere and value for money. We had salmon parcels and although they were lovely, they lacked in seasoning and flavour.

Absolute gem, delicious food, well presented in comfortable attentive surroundings and at great value prices. Cannot recommend lightly battered salmon goujons starter highly enough, this was fabulous as was the rest of the meal. The waiting staff are young and I am saddened to read earlier reports where in my opinion it appears their inexperience may have been tested -... More

Our first visit here on a trip into Barney. Made this our lunch stop, a very very good decision. Everything about this place is lovely, venue, staff and especially the food. Will be back.

We visited our favourite restaurant again this evening after a last minute phone call to reserve a table as booking is definitely advisable! We were greeted by friendly staff and were promptly seated and drink orders taken. Our food was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed our tempura prawns, duck wrap, baked salmon parcel and prawn sizzler enormously. The vegetables were... More
