Not eat here got a while and whilst we have always enjoyed our meal this time the quality of the food seem better. A new chef maybe? Great combinations of flavours and really good value given what others charge locally for less. Excellent service and beautiful decor in the upstairs restaurant.

We visited on Sunday for a family lunch. We were served salmon on pearl barley with clams and roast beef, yorkshire pudding with roast potatoes. They were accompanied by a large bowl of vegetables and a separate bowl of cauliflower cheese. Desserts were a selection of home made ice cream and a cheeseboard with biscuits, chutney, grapes and celery. The... More

We've eaten here on many occasions, from midweek lunch to family occasions.it just keeps getting better. Today we had Sunday lunch, it was excellent. Relaxed atmosphere, great service and lovely food. Great portions. All our meals were excellent. Nothing too much trouble. A big thank you to Tom and his team for a brilliant Father's Day meal.
