We dined here for the special one off Indian buffet evening in the new chilli barn. The barn conversion is lovely, no expense spared, lovely bright and airey atmosphere. Our complimentary drinks were served and we sat and waited for our starters, they took some time so we ordered more drinks that were forgotten. When prompted they did arrive but... More

Hi there. Thanks for trying out our special evening and glad you liked the food apart from your deserts. It was our first Indian Banquet so the timing will be refined and it's kind of you to say that. We just want to reassure you that the staff were super enthused about the evening, really buzzing about the good feedback... More

This is a lovely little place. During the day it is a cafe serving devious mains (aubergine parmagiano was lovely) and the most amazing cakes. Don't delay in getting you home made cake or scone otherwise they will be gone. The prices were really reasonable too. Oh yes it's also vegetarian so don't expect any meat but the menu is... More

Went for lunch today. Good tasty vegetarian food spoiled by the worst cup of tea. Loose tea which should have been a good idea but tasted stale and was served in a chipped pot. Half hearted service with little interest shown by staff. We felt like intruders. No dogs allowed, ours stayed at home but in an area mainly frequented... More

Hi - we're glad you liked our food but sorry you didn't enjoy your tea. Our loose leaf teas are a new development for us and do seem to be going down well with most of our customers. We hope you come back to see us again soon. More

If you are wanting a luxuriously lavish evening meal consisting of a bottle of Dom Perignon chilling in an ice bucket beside you, poached quails eggs to start followed by veal sweetbread wrapped in Parma ham with a roasted lemon and garlic mousseline sauce then this probably isn’t the place for you. However, if you want a relaxed, amazingly tasty... More

An impromptu visit and luckily there was a table for two available. The restaurant was very busy but we were served quickly and the waitress was happy to check with the chef which dishes did not have any gluten containing ingredients. The food was delicious, piping hot and generous portions. We took our own wine and our waitress willingly brought... More

Been to the restaurant many times on an evening and can't fault it. Just returned from a coffee and cake sat outside in the sunshine. The only thing that spoilt it was the miserable lady who served us inside! A smile and a thank you would've been nice but obviously too much trouble. The same lady also came outside to... More

Visited last night with a group of friends where only 1 is vegetarian. We shared the banquet which was amazingly good value - there is loads - 4 courses - all simply scrumptious. To say 8 out of 9 are eat meaters we did not miss the meat one bit. All dishes were presented well - portions not for the... More
