Disappointed...

I'll keep this brief as others have already filled the details... Food portions minuscule, costs too high, service slow. Seems to be a lot of variation in reviews.... Won't be booking again...

Lovely service, attention to detail and the food was locally based, varied, interesting and very well prepared. An extensive wine list, the proseco was very nice. We thought it was good value.

Me and my fiancée came here for a romantic meal and thought we would treat ourselves to the taster menu with matching wines. We were both blown away by the quality of food and would easily say it was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. Each dish was very well thought out and well balanced... More

I just want to express a huge thanks to Russ, Kat, Kate and Angela for the fantastic service provided at a corporate event last night. You alll went above and beyond with what was a very unstructured event. Spending hours helping out with technology and generally providing fantastic service with a laugh and a joke. The customers all loved the... More

Came in on spec with my wife as last time we ate was some months ago and it was fantastic. Change of management and a change of chef is so apparent. The food has gone from being original british reworked classics to poorly executed and lacklustre attempts at modern food. Waiters can't get a gin and tonic right and the... More

Had Sunday lunch here recently. nice surroundings & ambience sadly let down by the food. I had a starter of venison that was 3 strips of what looked like beef jerky. Main of beef was pretty average as was my two miniscule bits of cheese for desert. Tony portions averagely put together. We won't be hurrying back. very dissapointing.

Had a fabulous meal here. Sat by a raging fire on a cold winter afternoon lovely. This was not the main evening menu but the weekday lunchtime menu. Two course all of which was absolutely fabulous. Excellent value excellent food enough said I think!

Where to start? Let's start with 5 stars because I was able to book a table at a great time on Valentines day and we can whittle it down from there. My wife and I booked a table for 2 at 830pm and were told there was only a set Valentines Day 7 course taster menu. We were told the... More
