Went here for a pub lunch in the sunshine before catching our train home. We sat outside in the lovely pub garden and the weather was so nice it was like being abroad! Drinks were served promptly with table service (as we were eating) and the waiter was very friendly and funny. Drinks wise the bar served all the usual... More

The starters of goats cheese and spinach salad and the hummus with flat bread arrived promptly and were delicious.My husband ordered a main chicken dish and because I... More

This was not brought to my attention. When did you dine with us? There has been no complaints about the lamb, no reports of anyone being ill and we sell on average of a dozen lamb a day, it's one of our most popular dishes. Have you seen a doctor as you have been ill for so long? What have... More

I went on Saturday night to the new function room and garden for a gathering with some friends. We had a great time! The food was fantastic and they have a very good selection of beers on draught. The new room on the back with its own garden was great and had plenty of patio heaters when the temperature dipped.... More

We fancied a nice Sunday lunch and have only been in here once before for a drink so decided to try the food. We realised on the way into the place that it was Fathers Day so was concerned we wouldn't get a table, we were lucky though and sat in a fairly new part of the place like a... More

We visited as a large group for the 'Springboard Festival' which Cottingham hosts once a year. We opted to sit outside in the beer garden, it was a bit chilly but there were plenty of heaters available, they are on a timer so you do need to keep pressing the button. It would lovely at night as there were fairy... More

Went for lunch so didn't want massive meal. Went with the fillet steak sandwich and it was delicious. Had mustard and melted cheese on top, was so tasty and tender. The coffee was very good also. Will return.

We visited this restaurant with two other friends,we found that the service was excellent, being escourted to our booked table which was ready for us in their sun lounge. Everyone was delighted with the menu, which can be looked at on line, food was of a high quality, enjoyed by all of us.

We've eaten here before, as an extended family, and had a positive experience. Not today. The service was apathetic and extremely slow. The first item we chose - risotto - was unavailable even though our booking was at 1pm. The chips, that accompanied what we finally ordered, managed to be both completely overdone and yet soggy. It just felt like... More
