Tried to get a table for two very early (6pm) on a Friday evening as a walk in, no luck. The restaurant was almost full and they had just opened. We where offered a table at 8.30pm which was very politely offered. We declined as we where hungry.
We did go back for Saturday lunch at it was fantastic; easy to see why you need to book. All the food is homemade and the quality shines through. It feels like a traditional family bistro with top quality food and great wines.
Lovely staff, great menu and lots of specials. Very informal and superb value for money. Make sure you book, it is well worth it!

Booked for a birthday meal way in advance. We had a nice table in the upstairs room.

The choice of starters and main course was daunting - too many tempting combinations! But we coped...

The food was delivered promptly and in good quantities by smiling, helpful staff. And the food quality was the highest we have encountered locally for some time. We both had a chargrilled fillet which was so tender and tasty and the accompaniments were prefect too.

I can't recommend the food highly enough here. We liked the setting too. It will be our destination of choice in the Vale

How about linen napkins instead of paper ones though? It might just bring your score to 6 Stars!

We went to this restaurant with mother and father in law the day before our holiday. It was a cold windy Monday evening and I was surprised to see so many people eating out. It was just as cold inside but it wasn't time for the central heating to go on, the food certainly made up for it. Well worth a visit for all to enjoy.
Have now got the Christmas menu for friends to indulge in.

Visited for a 3 course lunch on a Wednesday,glad we booked as the restaurant was full. The starter main and desert was amazing value for money at £15.95.

Being a Chef myself eating out is hard because all I seem to do its critasize everything, however me and my girlfriend enjoyed and savored every last mouthful. I also have to say that the service we received was second too none.

Would recommend to anyone well worth The drive out. It made our holiday thanks.
