Have eaten here several times and each time it has been different. First time there was no atmosphere, but second time was using Sunday Times vouchers and food was very good.

Had the Christmas lunch in December.It was super! We only had 2 courses but that was plenty for us. We very much liked the friendly service.The atmosphere was good too.Could not fault the food and the real fire was just the ticket. Coffee in the comfy lounge finished off the meal nicely-Well done. This was our third Christmas dinner there... More

The food is imaginative and portions generous. As vegetarians we only have one choice but it was very good: goat's cheese mousse, poached pear and pear sorbet... More

I attended a corporate dinner. The service was good and there was a nice pint of Black Sheep at the bar before dinner. We had a pleasant room although there was insufficient room for the waiting staff to move around. I had a piece of pork fillet which was nicely cooked but served with a bland vegetable foam of mysterious... More
