Food and drink was excellent. Had the dog with us so sat outside as the weather was lovely but dogs are welcome inside too. Had coronation chicken pitta and rump steak sandwich followed by creme brulee and brownie. All were excellent, the creme brulee was one of the best we've had. The drinks were excellent too! We will return for... More

I visited on a Saturday evening with my partner. Our table was booked for 8.30pm. The venue is lovely and the tables are spread out into the different rooms. We were in a room with a large party which unfortunately was a bit noisy. The food did take quite some time to arrive but it was lovely and the waitress... More

On this occasion the meal was disappointing. I enquired about the duck with pancakes starter and was informed it was slow-cooked and very tender. I could barely get my fork into it. My tandoori cod main course was extremely dry and I returned it. The waiter was seen to roll his eyes as he took the dish away. The replacement... More

Great food and service We had a late lunch were sat in a quiet area of the restaurant. Was still a beautiful setting and would highly recommend this. Food was beautiful with a generous portion. Staff were attentive and service was good. Will definitely be visiting again. Was very good value for money too.
