This is one restaurant we cannot recommend with confidence. -- not because of any express dissatisfaction, but because every visit is so different. Staff and menus are different on every occasion and quality can vary accordingly.

I would go elsewhere. Service terrible - did not explain menu.

Special easter menu and options not available.

Advertise craft beer range and only 2 options available.

Long wait for food.

Food ok but overall very average

I actually went here for dinner 12 years ago & it was amazing back then. Have to say the place is looking very outdated & in need of some TLC. The service was excellent but the food was a let down. I had the Tapas & it was nothing to write home about, my husband had the steak which was ordinary & my dad had the fish & chips which was bland. Sorry to say but I would not recommend this place at all.

The dining room is also very comfortable but since we were there for lunch we choose the cool and leafy garden. Our Green Lipped Mussels were delicious and there were many other interesting options on the menu also. A glass of their wonderful wine completed a wonderful sojourn on a hot, dusty day!

Lovely place to eat, all home grown veggies and fruit. The smoked salmon was delicious!
