I visited as part of a large group, they were aware of my allergies and nothing was too much trouble, they even brought me the sorbet container so I could double check the ingredients. The food was lovely, I had roast beef, the service was also very efficient. I will definitely be visiting again. They are also dog friendly although... More

Absolutely disgusting food left my lukewarm warm lasagne with stale garlic bread. Soup served in a coffee cup no soup spoon. Finger food came from packets and reheated we could see the staff opening the packets. If you like food do not go there!

So sorry the food was such a disappointment for you on New Year's Eve. It should be noted that our New Year's Eve party is always a "one-off" event and that emphasis is on creating a relaxed and fun environment. It was our belief that all guests left having had a great time, so to receive such a damming review... More

We turned up the other night, we hadn't booked. As we walked in the setting was so Pretty. We went to the bar and was greeted by Chloe. They was very busy but the owner managed to find us a table and squeeze us in. I eat out very often and I've got to say the food was amazing! I'm... More

Thanks for the review and so pleased your wedding was such a success. We generally have quite a number of wedding receptions through out the summer. They are always uniquely organised by Candida and Fiona. So if any of your friends are looking for a relaxed venue then please give us a call. Peter More

We were a tad disappointed last May but as one of the few places open on a Monday we wentt once more. What a difference - the place was crowded with Christmas partgoers but we were found a table in minutes, the food was good (chips vastly improved - the wife says), and the service was excellent without being over...
