This restaurant has long been a favourite of my family, but in recent years we have been consistently disappointed whenever we have returned. Most recently I took two friends from London for a Friday evening meal. Ominously my attempt to make a booking several days before took two unanswered phone calls ealy in the evening before at the third attempt... More

We arrived at lunchtime without a reservation but the place was nearly empty so no problem. My 7 year old granddaughter had had goujons here before so asked for them again. I had salmon on the specials board at £11.95 for starter and main although I had no starter. When I decided not to have a starter after all, he... More

We've been going to this restaurant since it first opened and it's as good now as it ever was. The selection of fresh fish and meat, which is on view to be chosen from, is never disappointing. A little more expensive now but then, everything is, and this is certainly worth the money. A huge selection of fresh salads complimented... More

Went today for a friends birthday. We all chose from the 2 course meal selection for £11.99. Great selection of starters and mains. I had beef stir fry starter followed by the lamb and have to say the food was excellent. Drinks are a bit pricey £1.70 for a small mixer but the food and atmosphere more than made up... More

Went to the glass case where it said Venison £15.95, on the board on the wall it said Venison with red cabbage and peppercorn sauce £16.95. Well I like mine plain so I pointed to the venison in the case and said 'Venison please'. Well when it arrived it had the red cabbage and peppercorn sauce. I explained I wanted... More

For our last visit, we booked a table for five people, after being there many times before, with good food and friendly service. My food was fine, as I ordered the live oysters for my starters and big tiger prawns for mains, as I normally had done. The prices for them had gone up quite a bit though. As for... More

We arrived at 7 to find a quiet restaurant so popped over to the bar for a pint. I ordered a pint of Guinness and a diet coke (small bottle) it came to £6.20 so not the cheapest, but we were in a good establishment. The staff were very pleasant and we were taken to the table. I hadn't been... More
