Regrettably, opening hours are somewhat restricted to weekends. Sunday lunch is excellent value, good range of choices, well presented and served smilingly. Certainly worth a visit and a far better venue and value than many gastro-pubs trying to be better than average.

A fixed price menu in a pleasant dining room over looking a golf course. The service was very good however the white wine by the glass should have been much cooler. The meal was three courses for £18.95 with a good choice of each course. Roast beef was found to be a little dry and the chicken dish lacked a... More

Had a beautifully cooked seabass fillet with scallops. Absolutely delicious and can't wait to get back over. Don't confuse this place with your regular golf club offerings. This is a top restaurant which deserves a visit.

Went for a wedding. Soup lovely, main course roast potatoes amazing but the mini corn is horrible and should be replace with cauliflower cheese. Warm chocolate brownie would have been better with jugs of double cream to pour over than ice cream. Just my preference. I had to change for the evening in the toilet and there was no long... More

Me and some friends came here on Saturday night (23/04/16) for a steak night. The place its self is in a lovely scenic setting and is nicely furnished and decorated inside. We paid for a 3 course set meal which was reasonably priced and the starters and the desserts were lovely, but we had a few problems with the steaks.... More

First time back to this restaurant, which has changed hands a few times over the years, but I will definitely be back. The Fish Night was one of their special promotions and special it was. There was 11 of us in the group and between us we probably had most of the items on the menu, and everyone said it... More
