“Good food, Bad service”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Very nice continental food. But the service is very bad and slow. Don't ever visit on weekend nights. It is overcrowded.

“Great buzz and good food”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

This has a lovely garden setting, friendly staff, a good bar, is reasonably priced and above all, the food is good.

We ate from the tandoor on the two nights we visited and it was fresh, hot and tasty.

The menu is not that different from others in the area but the atmosphere gives it the edge.

“Bad fish”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

This is a very pretty restaurant and very busy 4 of us went to eat here, our table was in a corner near the edge of the bushes the restaurant canopy is held in place by pilars on at least 3 of these pillars rats were nesting and actually running on the floor
When our main course was served 2 of the meals (pie and chips with mushy peas ) came without mushy peas which had been replaced by baked beans the next one was cottage pie which again came with beans these 3 meals was ok the steak pie was nice but the cottage pie was just ok however the fish and chips was dreadful it was Kingfish, it did not smell fresh and the flesh was slimy my friend complained so the waiter took it away and my friend was offered something else , by this time she didn't want anything else so the waiter asked the owner ( a man with long silver hair ) if he should take it off the bill and he refused with the statement that she could have had something else to replace the fish at no charge and it was her decision not to have a main course. Why couldn't he take the cost of the fish off the bill ?
The waiter was lovely and so upset however we didn't even get an apology from the silver haired man
Not good business policy in my opinion
