Went here today for a birthday meal with my wife and one of our children. Very nice place, great ambience, excellent food and brilliant service. Would definitely go back and thoroughly recommend. Had the steak and kidney pie, which was delicious. Thanks!

Visited with quite a large group (15) The décor was gorgeous - comfy chairs, stylish lighting. Service and food were excellent. Good value for money & variety of choices on the menu for all. Highly recommended.

There were a couple of vegetarian options in the starters and main courses. But I feel pretty sure that if you were to ring ahead of your meal they would be able to provide some choices. They are very friendly and helpful.
