Passed here many times and thought must try. Not disappointed. Called in for lunch. Our 2 young servers were very good and the food was amazing. A treat both to the eye and the taste buds. Would fully recommend anyone to go here. We will definitely return in the near future.

I ordered the not so fresh tagliatelle with roasted pumpkin, blue cheese sauce and crispy spinach. This was a very bland dish with no blue cheese just a white sauce and no crispy spinach, the pasta was... More

Great friendly customer service, best roast beef lunch I've had in years and my husband said the roast lamb was superb. Really lovely in there since their refurbishment and dogs are welcome in certain parts of the restaurant. Would recommend
