My wife and I have frequented this restaurant for special occasions quite a few times. We enjoy the choice of food, mostly traditional English food, specially prepared, but with a few more exotic dishes. The selection of starters is wide, catering for different tastes, and the food is always fresh and well presented. The main courses are also varied, and change to some extent, with the seasons. The meat and fish are mostly local and the vegetable selection is fresh. The accompanying sauces are all delicious. The sweets are wonderful and, again, made with fresh ingredients. Coffee is good and can be accompanied by one of the huge range of malt whiskies kept in stock. The wine list is good and reasonably priced, along with the food.
We've always found the service friendly, unfussy and efficient. Usually, a good mix of music plays in the background, at a level to disguise the conversations of other diners but not at all intrusive.
You don't have to book here, usually. Though if considering a large party (more than 4), I'd advise you do check for availability. We've eaten here as the only guests and also when the place was fully occupied and everything in between.
If you're looking for good food, served well in a traditional English setting, and priced reasonably, you will find exactly that here. I recommend it.
