On our return after a year or two everything was as good as it ever was. Top quality food and drinks with great service. We really enjoyed our visit and it will not be too long before we visit again.

Food very nice and great for what you pay for it. Service quick and efficient. The waitress accidentally got a side order wrong, very apologetic, admitted her mistake ( rather than some places where you are made to feel its you!) and swiftly rectified. Always a bit got in there for me- maybe it's the thatched roof but not enough... More

We went on magic monday unknowingly and had a fantastic time, staff and the entertainer were wonderful and really made us laugh. We also enjoyed our balloons thanks to David Schollenberger.

We were a party of 6, consisting of four adults and two children. The menu catered for everyone's tastes, including our vegetarian daughter who is hard to... More

For just a cheap eat out can't grumble but not as nice as others, my other half was happy with his though. The building itself is lovely.... just a shame it didn't reflect that inside. I had my meal refunded because my beef rib was dry and chewy. I was offered something else but not much use being offered 10... More
