This is a lovely old building with open fires and a homely atmosphere. There is a large car park on the premises so no problems there. We were a group of 13 adults eating on a weekday evening and had booked in advance. It was a little disappointing to find that we were not able to have their Christmas set price menu, as shown on their website, as this would have to have been specifically booked in advance, a fact that we were not made aware of. It also took a little too long before serving our first course. Having said this though, the two waitresses who attended to us were very pleasant and efficient and met any requests that we had.
The food was excellent on the whole, in particular I had the Smoked Haddock kedgeree with a crispy egg which was superb, nice and spicy with a lovely soft yolk in the middle of the egg. I then went on to have the mushroom parpadelle main course, and although I am not a vegetarian I found this to be delicious as well.
The were some comments that the portions were a little small so a side dish may be required as well. Some of us had desserts which were also very good.
I would happily recommend this for small or larger groups, but if the latter it is worth checking with them first if there will be any restrictions on what you order.
