Our second visit did not disappoint! In fact, it was even better than the first time. The new setting has a much more intimate feel and nothing is too much to ask of the excellent staff

Visited the restaurant on Friday with a Groupon deal, started off by having a few drinks in the bar area and then went to our table for dinner. The food and service was absolutely brilliant, we liked it so much we booked a table for Valentines night as soon as we saw them advertising it. We will be definitely recommending... More

We organised a Christmas meal for a mixed group of people as a thankyou for their help throughout the year. We enjoyed a great evening of wonderful food in the luxurious surroundings. Everyone commented on the friendly service given by all of the staff, a real credit to Terry George the manager

Food,as ever,was excellent but,it just doesn't work for dinner/dance set up at the new location. So,would most definitely go back to dine but not for similar function. We had to walk through another function to get to the dancing,which was another NYE do. The old venue was far better,where you could sit at your table and watch everybody enjoying themselves....

Thank you for your review after you visited the restaurant on New Year's Eve. I am pleased you enjoyed the food served on the evening, we received many positive comments about it. It was never our intention that we would run dinner dance events at the new restaurant due to the size and this is why within our Christmas programme... More
