“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Lovely food. Have been many times. Staff always helpful. Always quite quiet but food is worth every penny. Not at all expensive either.

“Why was it so empty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We did eat early, siting down at 7pm. We were the only 4 in the restaurant, until 8pm.
We were pleasantly surprised, could not make a decision on starters so ended up having 2.
The main course was fantastic, portion size was extreme, when the plates were cleared it looked like we hadn't started, although we did have a desert, you just have too. Friendly and attentive service. We then got the bill and another surprise, great value. We will be returning.

“U3a Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

As a member of the u3a we have a lunch club meeting once a month at different restaurants. Many of us were quite sceptical about this one.The restaurant had been opened especially (30 members), but some were going to stick to English food. When we see the food, we thought give it a go, and we were impressed the food was gorgeous. The staff were extremely helpful and the surroundings lovely. Definately can't wait to go back!!

“Excellent night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Highly recommend this restaurant.
Staff courteous & efficient. Food very tasty & plentiful.
It is always impeccably clean. Plus a well stocked bar including real ale, as it is also pub, albeit separate to the restaurant. Beautiful garden with covered benches.
All at a very reasonable price.
