Booked a table for lunch here for 14 for a graduation,food was excellent but unfortunately the restaurant was extremely hot. We all had to pre order our choices 2 days prior to our reservation and on the day it all got a bit confusing

Average at any aspect. No reason to return. Maybe our expectations were too high from all these raving reviews!

What a fantastic find. Top notch English cooking with fantastic locally sourced ingredients. Beef cheek ragout to die for, and the best pork belly I've ever had. Good selection of local beers, ciders and wines. Great service.
