Having been promising myself to dine here for years ( see review title). I finally got round to it. First impressions were favourable with a designated car park for diners. On entry to the restaurant I (we) were instantly impressed with how spacious the dining area was, with ample room between the tables. We first visited the bar where we... More

Popped in the delightful magic for a quick lunchtime treat, as always wonderful food, the homemade mushroom soup was simply Moreish magic, the set menu for lunchtime takes all the effort out of choosing as their is a refined great selection for all tastes... Love this place

Thought the staff here were welcoming and did a good job. Plenty of parking, nice setting. Food a bit disappointing, not much flavour, the desserts were the best part of the meal although a bit expensive they were lovely.

The food was good, the service excellent, the atmosphere very relaxing and the whole experience very enjoyable. We visited on one of the hottest days of the year and found the restaurant pleasantly cool although those who really enjoy the heat could choose to dine in the shady. The set menu had plenty of choices and I especially liked the... More

Come here for wife's birthday on a Thursday and we ordered from the set menu. Normally this only involves 3/4 dishes but surprised that there was much selection. We both had salt beef, lamb and Oreo cheesecake, highly recommend. Would definitely come back again, staff were brillIant.
