We booked for Mother's Day lunch and was made aware that a set menu was being served. We were not disappointed as there was plenty on the menu to choose from and the price was very reasonable. The starter, main & sweets were fantastic, the beef just melted in your mouth. All the food was hot and plenty. The waitresses... More

Starter was very moreish calamari, followed by smoked haddock mornay with perfectly cooked vegetables. Extremely drinkable merlot set up an enjoyable meal. Welcoming, friendly and helpful waitress and bartender ensuring that we shall be back. Good selection of fish dishes was certainly a plus for us. Sadly we were too full for dessert. Glad we decided to try this place... More

Love this place, husband decided to take us both out for a meal and this was my first choice, OMG, walked in to a little piece of heaven, fantastic character and beautiful coal fire burning, absolutely drawn in by the charismatic young man behind the Bar. Very professional and friendly staff, then came the food. Extensive menu lots of choice... More

Stunning, this food is simply amazing!!! The sea food is unbelievable, yes you might get fish and chips anywhere but you won't get it like this... to say this restaurant is in South Yorkshire in the middle of no where it is well worth travelling. The only fault I would have is I live to far away to go back... More

My son booked for eight of us family and friends to go for a meal, 14th February was the only night we could all make it, he had been before with friends and had a good night/meal and wanted us to try it with them. When we arrived to our disappointment it was a set menu at £25 per head,... More
