We were looking for somewhere local to enjoy a quiet meal and having read some reviews we decided to give it a try and were not disappointed in any way. The bar area was inviting and we were served a drink of our choice on arrival followed by canapes at our table.
The restaurant was suitably festive and the following 5 course set menu was spread over a 4 hour period concluding with champagne at midnight. The food was beautifully presented and extremely good, the staff very attentive and overall, it proved to be an excellent evening. We will certainly be visiting the restaurant again and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fine dining. Those who expect huge quantities of massed produced food and 'chips with everything' may be disappointed!

I have previously stayed here in the accomodation above, which is tremendous. Very nicely provisioned and decorated rooms, and a breakfast that will set you up for the day. On a seperate visit, 6 of us dined, with 3 courses that was probably the best value I have experienced in a long time for such a lovely restaurant with an ambience like this. The staff are really efficient, the 3 courses were faultless, and the wine list has a great range with (again) a list that will suit every taste and budget. We will certainly visit again (and look forward to it).

We were a group of ten for our Christmas 'Get Together' so the main thing was being with friends. The ambience of the bar area and restaurant is poor. No criticism with the staff who were pleasant and efficient. The food was ok, but just ok (School Dinners sprang to mind).
Nothing more to say except, would I go again? No.

Went for an early Sunday Christmas lunch with family. The menu was festive and the fixed price selections were very good. The selection of vegetables was good and whilst the restaurant wasn't busy it was apparently a conscious decision not to open the whole restaurant as the prep time was required for large groups visiting the restaurant in the next few days.
Service good not intrusive. Will use again.

I joined a friend for lunch after a recommendation and looked forward to a return after sometime away.

The restaurant was very nicely decorated for the festive season. Starter of soup was ordered, the dish had a circumference larger than any other I have ever seen before! The area in which the serving was encased was so small it was hard to believe. The second order was off the menu and was small but tasteful.

Main course was turkey veg & potatoes. A joint turrine of both veg produced one with 5 roast potatoes ! and the other wouldn't qualify for a one of your 5 a day.

No doubt on quality, but quantity - too little.......

Will not be a recommendation from me.
