We took our visiting Antipodean family and friends with us for dinner here; it's the first time I've been and I honestly can't find fault. The service was excellent and the food a solid 4.5 out of 5. Leftovers were boxed up without fuss and we all left saying we'd definitely be back. From what I hear a real improvement... More

In a party of 10, so able to comment on the food on the basis of several different dishes. The service was good. Nice, polite and attentive waiting staff. Very welcoming and accommodating. They made the effort here. In relation to the prices charged, the food is only just average across the board. Some dishes were below, the rest just... More

Really disappointing lunch . The salad was a few dry rocket leaves onions cucumber and chunks of feta with a dry pitta bread . No creativity and it cost £14 . Glass and red wine on the floor clearly from the night before . The toilets smelt of cigarettes . For the price of the food it was a poor... More

We recently visited for a party the food was very good and good portions. The service was also very good. On the down side there was not much space but will definitely be going back.

We went to the Red Cat for lunch and a catch up, so the extremely slow service wasn't really an issue. They did apologise as we were leaving at 3.15 and knocked our drinks (sparkling water) off the bill without us asking. The food was good, I had seafood linguine and my friend had seafood risotto. We both enjoyed it... More

Myself and my wife decided to have a mid week visit. We haven't been for a few years as in previous years we had bad experiences. How ever new owners and a make over have done wonders. The service was friendly but not over the top. The food was top notch. We shared a Italian platter, and I had a... More

Decide to visit after an afternoon out at White Coppice. We were greeted with the warmest of welcomes and had drinks with friends before my husband and I decided to stay on for a meal. The staff could not do enough for us. The atmosphere was perfect. The food was delicious and plentiful. We had a Spanish Sharing Platter to... More

We went on a Sunday lunchtime and the restuarant was empty all bar one other couple, therefore lacking in atmosphere. We ate from the market menu, I started with the mushrooms which were very nice but far too many. I next had the Porchetta, which was presented on a plate of meat and gravey. Although lots of meat it was... More
