Lovely warm intimate setting. We had a lovely booth. Food was really good. The beef was so tender it fell to pieces and it had fab flavouring. Staff were excellent and friendly. Will definitely go back.

Called in for an early dinner, five adults and one child. Early bird menu was varied and seemed like good value. It was when the food was presented and tasted that we knew this was an excellent deal. Food was very tasty and service was friendly. Will return if passing this way again.
