This truly is a great place to eat and drink, the food is fantastic with each dish on the menu carefully thought out and planned and served with well kept Ales and a superb wine list...We've eaten here on a number of occasions and whether it was a Monday or Saturday night or a Sunday lunch every visit has left me wanting to come back for more.!! Our latest visit was a Sunday lunch for my Fathers birthday and from the minute we walked in we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for any of the brilliant staff members, the Roast Beef here is defiantly recommended. My advice, book a table, get there early and enjoy a drink by the fire, sit back, relax and look forward to some impressive food with some fantastic first class service.. I Will be back in a heart beat thats for sure.. Amazing Amazing Amazing.

Went here for a night and also booked in for a meal. Overall it was an enjoyable experience. Very relaxed atmosphere. Would certainly recommend this to family and friends. If I could improve on anything it would be to have a pot of coffee for breakfast but apart from that the room was comfortable and everything worked fine. A hidden gem

Great Sunday lunch. Met friends here, we hadn't been before but had been recommended by another friend and it didn't disappoint. Great food, friendly attentive staff and a lovely building.

We booked this restaurant because the one we wanted to go to was fully booked for Sunday lunch. As none of us had been here before we were a little dubious. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The one downside was that we were left standing waiting to be shown to our table (two of the party are disabled so that was a little uncomfortable and the chairs and sofas for sitting were far too low). Once we were seated though, we had a lovely time. The young staff were very friendly and polite and our food arrived very quickly considering they were pretty full. The food was really good, and was enjoyed by all. Their menu has some interesting dishes and we will be back to try some of them out.
