We had a meal here friday night, The food was excellent and the service prompt and efficient. Best steaks we have had for some time. The starters were enormous - almost a meal in themselves. Couldn't fault anything.

We ate at the Old Hand and Diamond mid week and glad we had booked before hand as we wanted to eat in the bar because it has a lovely atmosphere and it was full when we arrived about 7.00pm.

We visited on a Monday evening for a meal, there were quite a few diners and there is a nice area of seating outside. The service was efficient and staff polite. There is a good choice of meals with an early bird offer of two meals for one Mon to Thursday from 6 pm to 7.30pm. The meals were well...
