Good food consistently

Been several times. Food been consistently good. However downstairs can get very noisy as its one small room and people come in for just a drink on main nights and wouldn't go again at weekend. Couldn't hear what our group of 4 were saying. Whole place could do with a good clean and freshen up... read more

Although it was some time ago that we visited with another couple, we all found it to be nothing special, indeed it was quite average. We needed to order across the Set and main menus to find enough choice for all our party - no fussy eaters amongst us. Use of a Gourmet Card brought the cost of both menus... More

I eat here on a regular basis however my last visit was completely ruined by a screaming brat who was old enough to know better. It was jumping all over the seats and wailing like a banshee whilst it's doting parents looked on proudly and seemingly obliviously to the bleeding ears of their fellow diners. I was disapponted at the... More

This is the second time we went to this place and it didn't disappoint us again - the food was really nice and the service was very attentive I would recommend their sea goat's cheese mousse and chicken pate as a starter and sea food linguine, or battered fish and chips as a main New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was a...

My family and I eat here often and it is always pretty good but I especially love the steak sandwich and fries, great meal for dinner.

Using our natwest discount card we have visited the restaurant on numerous occasions over the past 3 months. On every occasion we have been treated great and the food was always fantastic. If I could give this place more that 5 stars I would. Can't wait to go back

Having purchased a discount voucher, we struggled to be able to book, as we were told they were "very busy as they had a lot of offers on at present" We finally were able to visit today, one day before our voucher ran out. I would not have liked to have paid full price for any of the dishes we... More

Visited to use a discount voucher and we were not the only ones on the night. The restaurant is regularly featured on these websites, but don't let that put you off. The food is very good, the staff attentive and friendly (unless its desperately busy) and usually a good buzz. The voucher covers the main offer but some dishes have... More

After three visits here in the last year, I can say this is the best food in Hale. All freshly prepared by an imaginative chef (chilli chocolate sauce with pork belly, anybody?). The food is complemented by an interesting and good value wine list. We have been as a foursome for Saturday lunch each time and been highly delighted. It... More
