The beans, sausage and egg is lovely, homemade beans with chorizo and a quails egg. The squid was nicely presented but tasteless. For mains we had fish and chips, very nice, homemade... More

A very nice meal for a friend's birthday and some excellent options on offer. I was quite happy with the soup starter however would have liked something a bit more exciting/different than tomato (it was still very tasty!). The braised pork belly main was delicious, and the staff were very accommodating when we arrived with two more people than we... More

The waiter was very professional and efficient, we were quickly sat at a nice table and drinks order taken soon after we were settled. The food was absolutely to die for, not the cheapest meal out but I was extremely happy to pay the price it was lovely. I had the scallops, cooked perfectly and the flavours all worked amazingly...

Excellent service from the first call to book, birthday card on the table when we arrived, attentive yet measured service from both the staff we dealt with changes made to a meal when requested without question. Superb wine list. Definitely worth a visit if you can get a table which due to its popularity might be a challenge. We've ready... More

Celebrating our anniversary, my husband and I were greeted with a smile from the moment we entered the building. Feeling welcome, we were shown to our table which was by the kitchen at the near end of the restaurant. Fantastic seats! Loved watching the chefs at work. A clear passion and attention to detail as always, perfect! Thankyou for yet... More
