If you are a fan of real English food cooked to perfection than this is the restaurant for you. Good sized portions, efficient service and reasonably priced. Due to the quaint arrangement of seperate rooms it has a cozy atmospere even if it is not overly busy. Dont forget to ask if your chosen dish comes with veggies as this is not always the case. Also would not recommend the house wine pay the little extra for a decent glass of wine.

I love this little restaurant - it has a real family-run boutiquey feel to it. Dining is really relaxed and have used this place for lots of different reasons, choosing our baby's name, catching up with friends, big birthday sunday lunches & casual lunches with babies in tow. It works for all of these. Portion sizes are big which is perfect for people like me who have a big husband to feed but it does do a mixture of dishes that you will find something that works for everyone.

This is a cosy local restaurant, with really nice food. We eat here quite often and its my husband's favourite a the moment. You need to know where it is or you may miss it. The menu always offers lots of good quality and well prepared dishes - the menu has an English emphasis but usually with a twist. The desserts are wonderful so don't fill up on the main!
Service is okay, not overly welcoming but usually the waitresses and waiters are helpful, efficient and friendly. Would strongly recommend a visit!

As we are local, we know about this restaurant however if you weren't you might just drive straight past it and miss out!

Lovely quaint old restaurant with various cosy rooms.

Waiting staff very pleasant and looked after us well. Menu was delicious although we weren't aware they were serving roasts until another table was offered them...whilst we were on desserts. Never mind, we really enjoyed our choices anyway.

Will definitely return.

Arriving 19h00 instead of 19h30 at this restaurant does not afford you a wholehearted welcome. My starter was smoked salmon - very nice - nothing really can go wrong with this. I had ordered the lamb with flaky pastry - the lamb was lovely but there was nothing flaky about the pastry - it was a wad of pastry which ressembled a soggy biscuit! (I deliberately avoided the steak and kidney pie because of it's propensity to 'stodge' delightful though it often is.) All this aside I suppose my main complaint is really to do with totally indifferent service (although prompt).
