“Perfection”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Me & my boyfriend booked a meal for his birthday. We eat out a lot and this place was just our cup of tea! Superb food - menu is small (which is good!) but we both fancied everything on the menu and can't wait to come back and try the rest. Really enjoyed our night it was very early evening on a Sunday night so the restaurant wasn't busy at that time but the atmosphere was still good and we didn't feel uncomfortable one bit. The waiter was great too. Friendly but not pushy. Really couldn't fault it and have been recommending this great little restaurant to all our friends

“Great food, friendly staff, worth diverting off the m6 for”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

On our way to visit whinney brow again we chanced upon this place back in June and it's now one of our preferred stop offs. Food slightly more expensive but definitely worth it. Cooked fresh and well presented and willing to cater to requests.

“Cracker tucked alongside the A6”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Had a superb lunch here today, simple yet exquisitely prepared and presented fare. Home made Cheese and Onion pie for my wife and I had a burger with blue cheese. We then shared apple crumble and vanilla custard which was just divine.
The dining room is understated, yet welcoming and comfortable and would appear to seat around 30 covers or so, this is not a huge restaurant.
We had a simple lunch, but if the attention paid to our lunch carries through to the dinner menu, and why would it not? Then dinner must be to die for, so we are going back.

“brilliant”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We've eaten here three times now, and not been disappointed. The food is always of good quality, and the menu changes so the customer doesn't get bored. The waiter is attentive without being obtrusive and the pace is relaxed. Altogether a brilliant eating experience. Long may it continue

Stumbled across this gem! Excellent food in a lovely surrounding. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. One of the best meals we have ever had. Couldn't fault it.
