We ate here with family over on holiday from Australia. Delightful meal in lovely surroundings! First class. Price slightly more than other local eateries - but food excellent. All delighted

“Good food to accompany the bright and cheerful surroundings.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Ten of us had a long lunch here last Saturday and the experience was very pleasurable. The girls waiting on could not have been more helpful and willing. The food was above average for a smal town without achieving any top culinary points. This was reflected in the value which was excellent.

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Having visited previously for dinner and not being overly impressed, I'm pleased to say that the set menu for lunch was excellent. I had issues on my last visit with service but on this occassion the service was good and the food was great value for money at £12.95 for two courses. I'll definitely be back for lunch.

“Lived up to expectation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Had much anticipated lunch here with a friend. The staff were very pleasant -polite but not stuffy. The Smokie starter was good. The main course flat iron steak was tasty, even if the chef had forgotten the carmelised onion. Nice relaxed atmosphere.
For a three course lunch the price was reasonable. The Dinner menu is quite a bit more expensive and therefore not just a casual meal out. I would like to see an early evening set menu. I would recommend this.

“Average for cost”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

After reading the positive reviews we decided to give this establishment a try with friends, we had steak main course which was flavoursome but a little over cooked for medium rare, the presentation was a little basic, the starter of goats cheese with salad was very tasty but again presentation was basic and not what we had expected from a restaurant with such a good reputation as this, the staff were very attentive and curtious but they ran out of menus for us to peruse with only half the tables occupied?

All in all food was adequate, service good but all four of us thought a little on the expensive side.
