My partner and I met some friends here for the evening. We had a great night, the food was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and attentive and the surroundings are cozy and welcoming. We will definitely be going back. :-)

My friends and I have dined at this venue several times this year, and each time found the service to be painfully slow, particularly at lunch times when the staff seemed to spend more time talking at the bar than actually attending tables. As a result it became a venue we avoided, however, today we decided to try again and... More

Came here today for lunch and the service was TERRIBLE. There were 3-4 management staff stood around talking, at all times. They walked past dirty plates on our table several times and failed to take them. Management staff were rude and unhelpful and there only appeared to be 2 people doing any work.

The food here is consistently excellent. Delicious flavours and good portion sizes. They have a really varied menu and the specials change all the time. There's a very good range of vegetarian options (not just your usual vege lasagne or risotto) which even my very fussy husband has been impressed with. The service is very friendly, too. We've been back... More

Family birthday celebration dinner was made extra special by the excellent, friendly staff. Menu was very varied and all of our meals were cooked perfectly and well presented. All in all a great evening. Thank you to all the staff for making my birthday a special one.

Very friendly atmosphere - there was a special inside area for dogs with water and treats provided. The food was very enjoyable and Bobby our dog was fussed by the staff. We were made to feel very welcome.

We called in for lunch and ordered a bread platter to nibble while our main course was prepared. Unfortunately, they did not start prep until we had finished the bread so we had a longer wait than expected. My tart with salad was very tasty but my husband was very disappointed with his gammon. Our pleasant waitress offered to replace... More

Family Sunday lunch. Ages ranging from 3 weeks to nearly 80. All tastes catered for, including warming the baby's bottle for her lunch! Roast beef was excellent, as were the vegetables provided. The meal was large enough to satisfy all but the most dedicated eater, and the cherry pie was delicous. Others had the roast pork, and from their accounts... More
