We noticed on the first visit that it was very popular, and it became obvious why. The menu was very varied and the food excellent and reasonably priced. The staff were very good. Altogether a very pleasant experience.

Filling home-cooked food, that's what we were in the mood for last night and that's exactly what we got. Prices are reasonable - £42 for two mains, a starter and a bottle of wine. Good service also contributed to a good overall experience. The steak and ale pie is excellent, so are the jalapeño burgers...actually everything was really tasty so... More

Lacks atmosphere but good quality food. Order the goats cheese salad which was very tasty and good value for money. Came with loads of goats cheese which is a plus. The burger was good buy a little under cooked for my liking. Service was OK with a friendly enough waitress. One go again but wouldn't make a special trip.

Myself and my partner had dinner here one evening. The food and service were great. I would recommend the rib eye steak. It was late evening when we arrived but they kept the kitchen running a little longer in order to prepare our food. Would visit again.

We only had the fish and chips as was Good Friday, but they were cooked perfectly.. Our waitress was great and we noticed most were happy in their work, just one seemed to be very unhappy. Nice place, strange decor.... Restaurant was full but we waited less than ten mins for a table.

What a shame the food was here, beautiful looking place from the outside but the food really let it down. We had the £10.95 meal which was a starter and main, we had the broccoli and Stilton soup to start soup was delicious but disappointing was the supermarket style bread roll that accompanied it, for our main we had roast...
