Good food well presented

This is a busy establishment. Booking for a Saturday we barely got a table with 5 days notice. Menu choices were varied and imaginative with a selection of stalwarts if you don't want to try something different. Portion size was at the artistic end of the spectrum but if you are having a full... read more

We needed gluten free but no printed information was available a menu was hastily marked up and with waiter reassurance my wife chose a tasty casseolet. Unfortunately this or the risotto contained a significant amount of gluten causing her to be... More

Thank you for your feedback and first of all please accept our sincere apologies that your wife was poorly following her meal.

Friendly welcome and superb food. Just had a light lunch. Had chicken, bacon and advocardo club sandwich with the most delicious chips and it was fab, extra surprise was the beautifully cooked egg in the sandwich. Will definitely return to sample more of the great looking menu. Thank you.

We were in the Stamford area and decided to book this restaurant to meet relatives for lunch. It did not disappoint. The four of us enjoyed our delicious mains and also puddings/cheese board, and excellently made Pimms! The staff were extremely efficient, friendly and had a sense of humour. Very enjoyable atmosphere/lunch and we will certainly visit again. Thank you.

Been here a few times and it never disappoints. The price reflects the quality of the experience, fine dining, well thought out food and a solemn but comfortable atmosphere. The wine is excellent and the service is too. The manager/owner is a lovely guy, very knowledgeable and passionate about what they offer. The menu changes regularly, keeping the place interesting
