We walked in of the off chance on a wet Friday night, looking a bit bedraggled. We had eaten here last year during one of their lobster weeks and had a fantastic meal. We weren't disappointed this time either. Fantastic food, good wine list and excellent service. Highlight of the meal was the champagne jelly. Out of this world! We... More

Went again during our annual trip. Once again delicate flavours and everything perfectly cooked. Friendly service as seema normal. New to us was the excellent, fresh made bread. We enjoyed the lounge before & after the meal once again. Really cannot understand why it isn't busier.

First visited here a couple of years ago and decided it was time to return. So glad we did as yet again it was fab. Had pre dinner drinks in the amazing upstairs bar along with hot canapés. This was followed by a gorgeous two course dinner. Sadly was too full for dessert. Returned upstairs for coffee and liquors. Perfect... More

While staying nearby we enjoyed an evening meal at this delightful restaurant. The place was quite lively as there was a large group dining in the front area. The food was lovely & staff very pleasant & efficient. The price was reasonable for the quality of food.

Anniversary dinner at The Dining Room It's a pleasant enough place. Lovely bar lounge upstairs, nice patio area out back and a recently freshened up dining room Service attentive and food very very good It slightly lacks atmosphere and rarely full or busy and is certainly pricey Recommended for a special occasion

This is the second Saturday in succession we have dined here. That in itself was a real treat but the service and food once again raised the bar to a new standard. The smoked salmon starter was a delight as was the celery and apple soup. The locally sourced fillet steak was magnificent but the highlight of the night were... More

A large party of us ate here for a friend's birthday. A great venue with a lovely upstairs bar area, great for pre dinner canapés and post dinner drinks. The service was faultless, very genuine and attentive. The food whilst good didn't blow me away and won't stop me recommending this lovely place.

Went here recently with the wife, very good Saturday evening meal. Very good level of innovation while maintaining solid classic roots. The basket of bread was excellent too, very fresh and very tasty with a nice range. The terrine was one of the highlights and again excellent - some nicely chosen accompaniments Will definitely return
