I had the lamb shank here, it was cooked to perfection. Staff were great and value for money was 5 star. Can't wait to go back.

My husband pointed this out to the owner who said that the young man is her son. She should be so proud! A recent addition to the menu are the Belgian... More

We enjoyed our first visit here so much, we decided to make the 20-odd mile trip back within a few weeks - and are glad we persisted despite a strange greeting on booking and service which was rather indifferent compared to the previous occasion. On first visit in March, we were absolutely delighted with every aspect of the visit. This... More

This is a most friendly and accommodating restaurant. Sometimes we have been squeezed in at very short notice, despite it being very busy. Service is friendly, the food is very good with plenty of choice, whether eating from the everyday menu or the Specials board. The early bird menu is great for families and the fish choices are very tempting.Overall,... More

Last time we visited was lovely and I gave an excellent review however alot had seemed to changed in a matter of months.we had pasta which was very basic for the price,could've made better at home ourselves.

In response to your review, I apologise firstly if you waited more than a couple of minutes for your bill whilst I was busy assisting other guests at the reception with their payments & checking everything was ok for them. Secondly we have not had any changes to the chefs, waiting staff or our menu since your previous review so... More

First time here with friends. Got their half hour early and they welcomed us in with no problem. Sat upstairs. Stairs were going around so no good when wearing heels. It was really warm too so we ended up opening windows let a bit of air in. The food was tasty and delicious. Well priced. Service was excellent and wasn't... More
