Called here for lunch on a Friday. It is a little cramped with tables in two separate rooms. Food is ordered at the bar. We both had the pork loin dish which was very tasty. Prices are maybe a little expensive but I would definitely visit again.

Called in on the off chance to see if there were tables free for lunch and we were in luck. There was plenty of choice to be had on the bar menu and the quality of the food was excellent. Well worth the visit.

Excellent Sunday roast dinner, good quality meat (we had beef and pork). Veg good (we had to ask for more but there was no quibble with this) Roast potatoes were probably the best roasties I had ever had outside the house (i.e home made). Service was good although my cheese board never actually arrived while the rest of our part... More

Visited the spa for birthday treat. Staff were pleasant and helpful, enjoyed treatments immensely. Sadly ladies changing room and spa furniture are in need of a real good clean, it doesn't look as if they have received attention for quite some time. Doors really grubby, spa loungers tatty with what looked like food debris on cushions and 1/2inch dust visible... More

This used to be a lovely place to come for a really special meal. I have been coming here for fifteen years but now it's very shabby with neglected decor and peeling wallpaper. The food is still nice but way overpriced for what you get. My lentil stew was the same price as my husband's pork loin! How can lentils,... More

This place was recommended by our guest house as well as our friends. We were warned not to be later than about 5:45pm as it fills up quickly. They were not wrong. The food was great. I had the lamb and it melted in the mouth, and my wife raved about the duck. Service was quick and efficient and all... More

Came here for lunch Saturday afternoon, the food was nice, but the portion size for the price wasn't to pleasing. I ordered the curry which was a reasonable size and cost£11.95, but my partner ordered the fillet of lamb and we were very underwhelmed with the portion size for £16. The sauce was also extremely rich and very salty, I... More

We called here on Friday for a business lunch and made enquiries prior to arriving whether there was sufficient room for five people. We were assured that there was and no need to book. On arrival we went to both the bar and lounge neither of which were conducive for a business conversation. We proceeded to the restaurant to be... More
