The food was average, the decor was average - even shabby and not too clean looking. The service was average. We really wont be going back to this restaurant - nothing about it was inspiring - especially with so many good restaurants in the area - hopefully they pick up their game

Came here for lunch with some friends & as a regular I was excited to see that I was offered a "new" menu. The moment I looked inside tho, I knew it was merely the same "old" menu - only the menu design has changed & the prices have increased although not by a lot. I love the atmosphere &... More

But for the wrong reasons! I have hesitated to write this review as I was a guest and it was a "treat". I ordered the special of sea bass, served with a rich sauce, a garnish of vegetables and [as I recall] either no starch or one that could not be swopped. Either way, a request for chips incurred an... More

Service was friendly and fast and good! The garden is nice, the make a fire and have blankets to cover! Live music is cool and food is good, it could be a bit more French style, but that's just my personal opinion! Good place for dates or just having a great evening with friends! Enjoy it

Lovely setting and great venue, but I'm afraid the menu is dated and quality of food average at best, my advice is don't eat here, this reataurant is ready for a Gordon Ramsay revival project, the food is tired

Enjoy the summer evenings here, especially when accompanied by life musicians. New menu since our last visit, nice update to the selection whist retaining the favourites. Staff friendly and helpful but could be more attentive.

The food, decor, service - in fact all - needs a huge update. It's a potentially great setting under vines but the food is heavy and dated. Would love large salads, simple bistro-type food. There's a lot of competition so if they could offer high quality at good prices, they'd be a hit.

Food is not very exciting or outlandish, but pretty good. The outside area is nice in summer. Live music every last Tuesday of the month.
