Couldn't be better!

We called in sponatneously for an early dinner and the restaurant was very busy, which on a Thursday is a good sign. The lovely staff welcomed us like old friends, even though we don't manage to get there that often, and found us a table in the cosy downstairs area. The service as ever was great... read more

Enjoyed a casual lunch here with family on a Monday lunch time. Menu selection was excellent and the food quality matched it. Service and ambience was friendly, welcoming and authentic. Would definitely recommend! My wife said the smoked haddock risotto she ordered was the best risotto she's ever tasted! Pricing was fair too. All in all an enjoyable lunch at... More

This is really a 4 star review in terms of the food, service and general atmosphere. It was spoiled for us by the arrival of a couple with a baby. As usual the parents gave the child a spoon to bang on the table in case it wasn't making enough noise. My view is that this type of restaurant should... More

Have had some lovely meals here and staff and french Patron very friendly but the meat dishes in particular can be somewhat over rich and a bit samey. Too much black pudding stuffing! Yorkshire portions are all very well but a slightly lighter touch would be great.

Given a table although under duress. Table upstairs although had booked downstairs which we much prefer. Front of house lady could have been nicer. It was... More

We went for lunch during the week. I had smoked haddock Risotto and chips, my friend had a smoked haddock baguette. I thought my food was devine. My friend also said hers was brilliant. I will definitely be coming back in the evening for a meal.

Had a wonderful meal here on Valentine's night. The food, staff and overall atmosphere in the restaurant made it a perfect evening. Scallop and king prawn starters and pigeon and duck for main courses were well presented and all tasted fantastic, will definitely go back.
