“Lovely food. Definitely worth a visit!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Good Friday early dinner for 6. 4 adults, 2 children. 12.50 av main course, 6 for children's main course.

Andy and Barbara were really good with our children - crayons and colouring books arrived quickly

Didn't love the garlic bread but mains of lamb, gammon and steak & merlot pie were cleared !!

Just about to order dessert ;)

“The best fillet steak I've ever had!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I can remember looking at the menu and thinking that £22 was a serious amount of money for a steak, and that at that price, it had better be pretty good. Well it wasn't just pretty good, it was truly stunning; the best I've ever had.

The starters were fine, and I had no room for sweet. Maybe it was a particularly good night, but that steak will take some beating.

“Good food good service”
Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

Went last Friday on the suggestion from the local Travel Lodgewe were staying at. We were very impressed, service prompt and friendly,and all 4 meals were perfectly cooked and delicious. It probably is slightly above pub prices but I thought what you got was well worth a little extra. Only criticism is that portions re so large starters or sweets are not an option. Will be back beginning of March when we are staying in the area agin for a night.

Thank Colin G
