“Memorable meal!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

We went for a family celebration and I rang the restaurant to say it was a special birthday, the owner said leave it with me. When we arrived we had a helium ballon at the table and they Had a wonderful cake iced especially for the occasion. Fantastic food, service and finishing touches......wonderful! Would recommend to everyone!!

“Very nice food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Went for a family celebration meal and really enjoyed the food and restaurant. We received a warm welcome and the service was excellent throughout. The menu has plenty of choice and reasonably priced for the high quality of food (IMHO).The steaks were juicy and and cooked exactly as we asked.
We will definately go back.

“Excellent food and service - never disappoints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

My latest visit to this restaurant was with friends from work to celebrate Christmas. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere great. The place is always welcoming. The tables are far apart so you never feel hemmed in. When I visit in the cooler months, the restaurant is always warm and the atmosphere relaxing.

“great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

good food in well presented comfortable surroundings. Neal is an excellent host, very passionate about his establishment. Food both general and vegetarian superb. We often call in for the 2 for 10 menu and by sharing a starter and sweet and 2 mains get the experience of 3 courses. It works for us.

“great food, service so so”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

when there for xmas with a few girls, it was busy, so took a long time to order and get the food. but soup, starter main course all fantastic. Let down by dessert, the ice-cream is a bit cheap tasting. Service is ran by young staff that has not been trained properly, but they do try. But it was xmas, so it is hard to find good staff. overall, will go again because the food is good.
