Visited here in January as part of a family birthday celebration! There was a bid party of 20 of us! We all chose our food on the day so expected a small wait however in no time at all the food was brought out! Staff and owner were very friendly, would definitely recommend for special occasions but would advise booking

This is not a place for... More

We've visited a few times and are never disappointed! We have only been so far for Sunday lunch but are looking forward to arranging a visit for one of their famous steaks! Friendly staff and beautiful home-made and home cooked food. Would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone!

It was the first time i had visted and i will definately be returning. After reading previous reviews the men in our party were looking forward to a lovely mixed grill. Unfortunately these need to be prebooked as they are purchased fresh from the butcher to order. However we thoroughly enjoyed the meals we did order. After speaking to the... More
