We were staying close by for an evening and had not booked a table. We only waited for a little while before our order was taken. Our waitress, who I have forgotten her name (sorry) was vey nice and helpful. The food and wine was amazing. A charming restaurant. Would definitely recommend.

One of my favourite places to eat. Slightly pricey, but worth every penny! We have been a few times, and take anyone that comes to visit here. The food is of amazing quality, and the Sunday roast is sensational. We sit somewhere new every time, and find something new every time. It's so quirky, and beautiful. It's a hidden gem,... More

We had booked a table and good job as got quite busy. The menu was plentiful with a... More

By chance stopped here for a midweek lunch. There is a car park at the back. The pub is wonderful inside, very cosy with a real fire and tables under the beams and in little corners. All sorts of ornaments, knick, knacks and trivia. The menu was traditional pub fayre. Nicely served and a few special lunch items. The food... More
