Me and my partner had a lovely evening meal here. He would rate the food 4/5 but I've rated it 5/5. We had the mid week market three courses and they made me a personalised vegetarian menu, which was excellent. I was very pleased with my meal and the staff were very friendly.

We ate upstairs in a wonderful private room following drinks in the snug. It was a very busy Friday evening and although the service was perhaps a little inattentive at times the meal was excellent and certainly everything was worthy of this being such a special evening , the engagement of our youngest son to his fiance and we were...
