“Nice stop”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Stopped in for a late lunch on a Friday afternoon. The bacon and cheese sandwiches were very tasty. The restaurant was very chilly however on a winter afternoon. Next time I will bundle up a bit more.

Best breakfast around and great value too! Visited the other evening also and have to say I had the best slow roasted belly pork I have ever tasted. Sunday roast next and from what I hear, won't be disappointed.

“Not what I expected”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Nothing, the food we had was tastless and boring, expensive for what it was, cold and uninviting, out of date surroundings.

“Fab big brekkie!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

To cure the morning after feeling took a trip here for one of the breakfast deals. It was fab, loads of food and crusty bread for toast instead of naff stuff. Will be heading here again :O)

“Home Cooking With Good Service”
Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

We picked this restaurant because of the good reviews on trip adviser and we weren't disappointed. The decor is a little bit quirky but don't let that put you off. We were a party of four - two couples - we had three starters: moules mariniere with white wine and garlic, homemade broccoli and stilton soup and poached egg with caramelised onions. All the starters were lovely but the moules were divine! The main courses were steak, goats cheese tart, sea bass and steak and Stilton pie. All were cooked to perfection, the steak particularly. The only criticism would be that the chips were frozen ones not homemade. Unfortunately we were too full for the puddings! All in all though an excellent place for lunch or dinner - it has a lovely courtyard which would be a good bolt hole in the summer. The menu is not huge but I think that reflects the fresh nature of the food and you won't be disappointed.
