visited 8/11/12 for my wife's birthday . went at lunchtime and was pleasantly surprised to find that the full evening menu is offered at lunch, as well as some lighter lunch options via a specials board.
we both had 3 courses and all the food was superb, perfectly cooked and presented . ( i had the haddock smokies, the duck, and the blackberry creme brulee and they were all fantastic )
the wine list is excellent and reasonably priced.
expect to pay circa £50 for 2 people ( 3 courses each, glass of wine/ soft drinks ) but if you are looking for somewhere that isn't standard pub chain fare for a special occasion ( or even if you can afford it all the time !! ) then this is the place for you
excellent food, spotlessly clean, very friendly and attentive owner and staff
can only give 5 stars because thats the highest rating, but deserves 6
also noted they have printed their pre-xmas december menu which looks really good value, we will be back to sample it, this time in a taxi to enjoy the wine offerings
