My mother asked me to write a review as follows: 'I've been lucky to dine at restaurants all over the world. Many famous ones. That was about the best meal I've ever had in a restaurant." My review - how can it be that the food has got even better. Such good value.

Thanks for the lovely review, In april we welcomed Tom Moore a very talented young chef back to our team, he has worked with Greg several times over the last 10 yrs and they have a great working relationship which really shows in the food, having two pairs of hands in the kitchen has meant we can produce much more...

As we were staying just down the road in Rock Cottage, we decided to treat ourselves to dinner here. We had previously visited before the new owners took over & having read the good reviews, wanted to experience the changes for ourselves. The bar area is just inside & there are steps up to the main dining area, so this... More

We have eaten here a few times now and always it has been very good food served by very friendly and welcoming staff. This last time we were there we were with our family including grandchildren. The service and ambience could not have been better for us particularly as it was a birthday celebration and we enjoyed a great meal.

We booked in here after a poor experience elsewhere - the difference could not have been more marked. From the first contact to book, all was welcome and smiles: we felt really cherished. The ambience was lovely and waiting for our meal was no hardship. We were given a complimentary slice of delicious artisan bread (date and shallot) to keep... More

Our meal was booked at the very last minute but as always we were made to feel very welcome by Aly and the team. Food orders were taken very promptly at a busy Saturday night service and delicious starters were soon served. We had the soup and the two cheese dishes, both were amazing and were accompanied by homemade bread.... More
