I wandered in for dinner as I didn't want anything too formal, so ate in the bar sitting on a comfy chair. Food was great and obviously prepared with care, and the beer is good too.

Table looked stunning, food was out of this world. My rib eye steak was cooked to perfection and the seasonal greens ...samphire, asparagus and green bean were heavenly. Had to chase second bottle of wine but that is no biggie.
