Maybe it was the chefs off day. Was not impressed on this visit. The husband of the team is quite protective of the quality of service, so if you complain be prepared to be banned.

Having been before and had a good meal we booked for lunch, taking an elderly relative for his birthday. There was no table ready for us, they were still clearing tables from breakfast so we we seated on the other side and promptly forgotten about. It took 45 minutes and some prompting to get served even then. We were given... More

Had a great New Year's Eve here with 14 friend and colleagues. Place was packed but the five course meals were served in a timely, efficient manner. Each course was a delight, the courses took about three hours from start to finish but just right. Music and dancing provided. Great atmosphere, great night. Well worth the price tag. Staff friendly... More

High quality food, well presented, Service wee bit slow but the place was busy. Should probably double the number of service staff

We hadn't booked and were lucky to get a table. Warm welcome with super food and excellent service. For lunch they offer a deal on 2 or 3 courses - it was good value and although intending to stick to 2 courses the puddings tempted me to a third. Delicious desserts.

The Restaurant was quiet, it is winter and a January evening midweek. We have a business meeting and dinner. The environment was conducive to conversation and yet private. The staff charming helpful and attentive. The Dinner first class. My dinner comprised a gin marinaded salmon dish followed by Breast of Goose with an accompanying game terrine and fresh New potatoes.... More

This is a very great place with a splendid atmosphere, the staff are friendly and the food was great, the play area at the back of the restaurant is great for little kids. The only thing I could be a little critical about is the food that took a little while to come. But apart from that, I would highly... More
