The bar area is very pleasant with nice wood burners to keep you warm and, if you choose dishes made by Paul, you will not be disappointed with the quality of the food which is excellent. Steaks so-so although perfectly cooked and the wines very good and reasonably priced considering the quality. Rooms are comfortable (noise from the nearby A40...

Called in for lunch mid week, quiet, friendly welcome, interesting menu, ate tasty tomato soup, ham sandwich and a starter of cured salmon. The problem was that the portions were really small, especially with the salmon and there was no bread with the soup. Sadly, we left feeling hungry, having spent £23 pounds! So we may try again.

We had a very enjoyable lunch at the Garniche. We'd planned a nearby walk and the staff were happy for us to use their car park. They made us feel very welcome on our return and offered our thirsty dog a drink without asking. Dogs are welcome in the sofa area, we made the most of the log burner. Lunch...
