Drove just over 100 miles to visit my daughter who is at Uni in Newcastle and took my wife, her brother and grandma. Lovely busy restaurant, really friendly staff, great food, great atmosphere and great value particularly as we took advantage of their "happy hour" which is on each night. Steaks were delicious as was my pate, we all thoroughly... More

Sunday lunch cannot be faulted. I am very particular about correctly cooked vegetables and you are assured, that on every visit the vegetables are perfect. We all had roast beef and it was perfectly cooked and tender. The Yorkshire pudding is lovey. Highly recommend. I would just add, they also serve gorgeous Italian food.

Visited here for my friends birthday on New Years Day. Food was lovely and you can't fault the service or the prices. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal (chicken in a peppercorn sauce with vegetables) washed down with Prosecco and a delicious Tiramassu dessert to finish all at a very reasonable cost. It also does all the regular Italian favourites and... More

We first tried this place going back a few years now, it was probably around 2012/13. Although it wasn't really bad we never returned due to the fact it wasn't great and we had found better Italian restaurants. Anyway a few weeks ago we decided to try it again and I'm glad we did! I'm not sure if it's changed... More

My dad and I went in here for a casual, decently priced meal and we could not have been happier. I got a spinach calzone, which was unexpectedly one of my favorite meals on the trip. My dad had a seafood pasta dish, which he also thoroughly enjoyed. The staff gave us a drink on the house near the end... More
