This is one of those places you would drive past and think nothing about it. It out of the way and takes some finding but when you've found it you will be glad you did. The food was cooked perfect and I really liked the veg cooked just how I like it. Service was great and very clean and tidy

Went with family to the Faulty Towers Experience , what a great laugh. The actors performing Basil, Sybil and particularly Manuel were all terrific. I was there primarily for a bit of fun and wasn't really bothered about the meal, however there was a surprisingly decent 4 course dinner,admittedly with less variety than this fine restaurant would usually offer.

Just had the best night out ever, it was an experience we will be talking about for years. And the food was excellent as a bonus. I don't want to give too much away and spoil the experience for anyone thinking of going.

Selected this restaurant because of the reviews on Trip Advisor for a special birthday celebration Sunday lunch. We arrived and we're quickly seated. Our party comprised six adults, three teenagers, an eight year old and a baby - with two vegetarians. Whilst not extensive there was something on the menu to suit everyone. Virtually every starter was served to us... More

A really lovely evening out- if you're looking for somewhere to have some quaint, traditional British food in a relaxed and non-pretentious atmosphere this is it. Upon entering the Hostess, buoyed up by the lack of hipster beards and selfie sticks, it quickly became clear that this was going to do what it said on the tin. As we were... More

Excellent place for Derby & Joan, the staff are fantastic and the owners really work very hard to please everyone. The food is excellent and reasonable priced. The first time I attended a Christmas party night was over 20 years ago and I believe its exactly the same today. Its a real shame and its desperate for a total refurb

Good to read that you enjoyed the food and the service. We have had a refurb throughout only a few years ago so cannot understand that you found everything the same as 20 years ago. We like to think we cater for all age groups with our menu choices changing every week and discos on our weekend party nights when... More
