We visit once a week each time we go,and since the new owners took over have not been disappointed. The restaurant is not big and can seem a little claustrophobic depending upon your table ,but the food, steaks and meat in general is beautifully cooked and portions very reasonable. The staff are usually very attentive, but can seem less so... More

Very nice restaurant down near the marina Quite traditional, no fancy pretensions but good food well served in homely cosy surroundings. My homemade meatballs were delicious for the princely sum of £6 after converting. My wife had pork fillet pieces in a hot dish with sauce that was also enjoyed. Wine also good value. Really enjoyed it here. Don't expect... More

Food ok. Not super. Service not good. They ignore you while dinner is going. Not even ask afterdinners. Neighbour is better.

We had rather high expectations. The meat was good but not awesome. The staff were nice but seemed bit stressed. Nothing really to complain about but at the same time nothing to brag about.

We always book ahead to dine in this excellent restaurant. Lovley family and staff, excellent food. So helpful with our son, Robert, who is autistic with severe learning disabilities. They even cut his food up before bringing it to the table.
