Great menu as well with extras on the specials board. Please note the menu may change slightly compared to the online menu. We... More

Had a birthday meal here. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent. The food was delicious, we had all three courses. We only live 2 miles away but this was our first visit, it will not be our last. Thank you .

Great welcome and perfectly cooked and presented 3 courses. Cozy restaurant. Nice ambience. Excellent menu choices. Good wines to accompany and great idea to offer a taster or two to help you choose a bottle for the table. All courses were really tasty and beautifully cooked. Puddings were amazing! We would definitely return any time we were in the area.... More

It is small but perfectly formed, the welcome is warm, friendly and relaxed and the food was really excellent, I had a starter from the specials board which was a warm pear and roquefort salad with a piquant dressing, sublime and then a...

Partner had the halibut, perfectly cooked and a delicate sauce to compliment it. I chose the lamb suet pudding, simply stunning. Perfectly cooked seasonal veg to... More
