Just popped in for a meal on Christmas Eve and was not disappointed. I was surprised to find the menu was only £10 for a two course meal. Excellent choices of meals both starter and main. I chose the Ham hock and the lamb rump. The food was much better than the price would suggest a really good quality and... More

The restaurant/bar seemed to be quite busy. we were offered drinks straight away and soon after our order was taken. The choice for Sunday Lunch menu is small but adequate so ordering... More

By 8:45pm we hadn't had our orders taken and we had to ask a magician who was doing the rounds of the tables, to please get the attention of a waitress for us.... More

A group of us have just visited the wonderful restaurant and had our Christmas meal. The choice was excellent and the quality of food presented was excellent. A lovely setting that we'd definitely return to in the new year... Highly recommend

A group of 5 of us visited recently, We opted for the 2 courses for £10 menu with a small surcharge for steak. Prices on this menu are very cheap. Was an enjoyable starter for myself and others in our party. The main meals themselves disappointed, the quality of meat was mediocre, string garlic/herb taste to steaks, but then I... More

Recently taken over and turned back into a pub/restaurant and got its old name back (was an Italian for a while). The menu was not massive (encouraging start), the prices very reasonable. So reasonable in fact that we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything. No wonder it's busier than we have ever know in nowadays. Well worth... More

This was the first time I had visited the restaurant and I very much look forward to returning. I went with a group of 10 adults and 14 children, we were given a large beautiful room upstairs to ourselves which was ideal. The food was absolutely amazing and incredible value and the service we received was outstanding, nothing seemed to... More
