Visited here on a lovely summer's day that really allowed the place to shine - it's set in wonderful gardens that are great in summer. Food was very good albeit pricey; lots of reviews on here seem to state that the place has gone downhill a bit which is a shame, I would've loved to have seen it in its... More

We booked for five people. The place was very busy but they accommodated another couple with no hesitation at no notice. The staff were friendly and well informed. The food was excellent, and bearing in mind that the restaurant was completely full, the service was quick and efficient. Two of our party had been some time before and remarked that... More

Had a business meeting with another couple and I was envious of their sea food platter as opposed to my bland steak and chips which could have done with a bit of seasoning

Fresh and delicious food with wonderful attention to detail but not overly fussy. Very good wines by the glass and the team know their dishes. Friendly atmosphere and attentive service. Thank you for a lovely night.

Went with friends for Sunday lunch. First time visit & had a great time. It's situated in a quiet little village. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the staff were friendly & attentive, & there was a nice mix of groups & families. The food was of a good standard & service was pretty quick. Would definitely go again. One tip... More

Prebooked lunch on our way north to Northumberland, and we were not disapointed, we only wished that the weather was better so we could have sat in the Garden, but even so we very much enjoyed the whole lunch experience.All four of us had different dishes but mainly centred around starters, all of which were imaginative and beautifully crafted ,...

We arrived just before closing time at 2 pm having been held up in traffic, were nevertheless welcomed warmly and were swiftly served a delicious lunch which included ham croquettes, quail scotch eggs with rabbit, rosemary cured cod with heritage tomatoes, calf's liver and plaice, all of which were utterly delicious. Excellent bread too, and the petits fours were scrumptious,... More

We had lunch here as a post wedding get together.The menu was reasonably extensive with child options. Don't choose the larger of the whitebait options for a starter unless you are ravenous or willing to share.

We had a similar experience to Simon H. My partner arrived a little before me and went to the bar. He said he stood there for a while before someone reluctantly served him. When I arrived I went to the bar (very small so you can easily see people standing there), there were two people there with the bar man... More
