Celebrated my parents Diamond Wedding anniversary here with a personalised lunchtime 'do'. Norman, Caroline and Nicola went out of their way to make it an occasion to remember. Nothing was too much trouble. The menu was compiled according to our tastes and Norman suggested and provided the most amazing crab starter as this is one of my parents' favourites. Thank... More

Lovely little space with attentive staff and relaxed homely feeling. We asked them to prepare something not on the menu specifically for a family get together - burgers and chips ...however they were a bit better than the average burger and chips! Stacks of food, prepared with fresh ingredients, well made and excellent service all in a lovely cosy setting.... More

I have to say that this is one of the nicest, homeliest, friendliest small restaurant you could wish to find. If you have dietary needs, provided you tell them in advance, they will bend over backwards to satisfy you. If there's something on the menu which doesn't quite fit the bill they'll tweak it to suit. Sunday lunch is one... More

I am not a regular customer and I will not be rushing back. 5 courses on Christmas day for £65 a head seemed reasonable (ish) but none were great. I had turkey as a main course, it was served with a gravy that tasted like tinned tomato soup. The beef and pork had the same tomato gravy on them. It... More
