Good but decor was a bit stark

Those who may have read other reviews of mine will know I like the tablecloths, the fine glasses and elegant cutlery and crockery. Well. you are not going to get that here. Stressed wooden tables, paper napkins and old knives are what you get here. But a restaurant is about food not always... read more

We were met by very friendly staff. We had the special of the day which was 24 prawns for the price of 12, which we shared. They were fantastic. We also had a plate of riblets which had to little meat on to my taste. Good selection of lical craft beers and cocktails. They kept the fire going inside to... More

Staff are very friendly, it had a lovely chilled vibe, beautiful scenery. The way the deck incorporates the trees is stunning. Food was so good we ordered it again for dinner!!

Firstly, our waitron was really friendly and attentive. We were disappointed in the food that we ordered. My husband ordered the eisbein which was very dry and tough, and not served with authentic sauerkraut. I ordered a meat & cheese platter, which was disappointing. We loved the gorgeous dog and the cosy fire!

We had oysters for starters and a seafood platter for 2 and this was so delicious. The cheesecake was good I would go back for some more. Thanks to the staff who made it such a pleasant experience.

The staff was really friendly! I was looking forward to some prawns that they advertised. Two of us ate prawns. Mine arrived before the 2nd persons. We waited a while and when hers arrived we started to eat. Mine was ok, but it really tasted quite bland. Our cousin kept quiet but I saw that something was wrong. She said... More

We had the best steak and cosmopolitans! The service was also good. The restaurant was well marked and it had a lovely atmosphere with a burning fire place.

We went for lunch and ordered fried fish, a burger and the beef stroganoff pasta.The fish itself was moist, but the batter was too thick and too dark. No complaints about the other two dishes, but nothing spectacular either.

We chose to eat here because it was recommended to us but we were not impressed. The main problem was that we were sat in the front on the restaurant and it was very cold. We asked if the ceiling heater could be switched on but were told that it did not work. Other diners were given blankets but when... More
