We ate here twice and both meals were great. I had the smoked chicken salad one night and the monk fish special another evening. Good value - lovely food and a great hostess. Would thoroughly recommend.

The staff were friendly and the service excellent. A wonderful atmosphere with divine food - particularly for vegetarians.We had two meals here, dinner and breakfast and everything was superb. With an interesting bit of history :-)

Just had the best venison burger ever! Come to think of it it's the only venison burger I've had! But it was really good. Apple/rhubarb crumble, custard and ice cream to finish. Lovely. However the chips were substandard. They looked over cooked but were in fact quite tasteless. Service was good.

We arrived to eat at 6.45 and the restaurant was full. The staff assured us a table would be available within 10 minutes. True to their word we were seated and enjoying the yummy menu.

We ate here last Thursday, the food was lovely and didn't take long to come from the kitchen even though they seemed busy. The wait staff initially forgot to give us menus but once approached they quickly rectified this, I got the impression some of the staff may not have been there long or perhaps they were short staffed as...
