Drinks arrived and asked if we'd like to order. within a short space of time starters were served. for my mains... More

I always say a busy restaurant is the best test of their quality, unfortunately not the greatest today. Not that anyone was anything but friendly but it was a bit clumsy and mixed up (double checking drinks, confusion over available tables etc). Signs of being stretched. However the main criticism was the menu, which offered no middle ground whatsoever between... More

We chose of the Chef's specials. Some lovely choices, great to see something different on offer. Also, to be served without having to take your number to the bar. Food delicious and service friendly. Will go again as there is more on the menu I would like to try.

We meet friends regularly here on Saturdays and are never disappointed. The food is always good, service always excellent and we are never rushed. Gill is great and really helpful. We will be back soon.

We came here with my parents on a Friday night. We expected the place to be heaving, but it wasn't, it was nicely busy. This place is hidden away down a country lane, but it is definitely worth a visit. The staff were friendly, and the food was amazing. This is a place we will most certainly be coming back... More

Visited here today for lunch with my mum. The service was great, food lovely and very reasonably priced, we ordered from the lunch menu rather than the main menu but there was plenty of choice, the portions were a good size and the prices were really good. Overall a very nice experience.
