Bit late leaving this review but wanted to all the same because it was so lovely. My husband booked a table for us and my parents to celebrate my birthday. It was a very cold day but what a warm welcome we received; roaring fire and lovely landlord. Food was varied (I'm a veggie) and delicious. Such a sweet waitress... More

Nice surroundings, warm welcome and staff who were friendly but very professional. The food was excellent and if you like bread and butter pudding this one is to die for! Not rushed, nice pace which resulted in a wonderful evening out, we will definitely return!

My husband and I visit here as much as we can, the atmosphere is great, the food is fantastic and the service is top notch!! You can't beat the quality of the food, and as for the ice cream, well we order in tubs and take it home!!! You can't fault this place, it's our favourite!!

First visit and not disappointed. Lovely fresh ingredients and tasty food. I especially recommend the millionaire chocolate mousse to die for! The only slight downside is it's not very big and we were on a table for two so we're pretty close to the table next to is so not very private but I know they can't help this. Would... More

Lovely friendly atmosphere and warm welcome. Staff are very professional and friendly. We had pre dinner drinks in the pretty courtyard garden whilst looking at the mouth watering menu. Our friends are vegetarian but didn't stuggle to find something to tempt them on the menu. Food was superb. Well presented,good portion size. Fresh and we'll cooked. Very much enjoyed. Wine,...

The meal was lovely especially the steak cooked exactly as we wished and that was large portion. The menu is not large but the variety very good. The sweets were awesome defiantly go back just for those. A bit pricey but enjoyable all the same. The landlord was extremely knowledgeable about his wines
