We ate here 3 times in a week - 2 evening meals and 1 Sunday lunch. The menu is superb. A large choice of freshly cooked to order food, well presented and served by the most wonderful staff you could imagine. Recommend the lamb shank, roast beef and fillet steak. If you are staying at the camellia Hotel too, please... More

Last night we went for a meal with friends who live very close by. We had an excellent meal after the obligatory G&T's in the bar before hand. The service... More

Meals cooked to order and fresh vegetables - not too cruncy, not too soft. Pleasant service, and hot meals.

My wife an I dined in and ordered starters and a main meal the starters could have been from a supermarket, and the presentation of the main meal was poor. We both expected more especially after being advised by staff that the food was exceptional. The restaurant was nice and some of the tables were made up and looked nice,... More
