We booked through their website which was fine, the confirmation email however, has the wrong postcode for the place, which didn't help arrival using a sat nav. Once arrived though, the welcome was very good, the restaurant was clean, tidy and as you would hope...More

We decided to try out the £22 for 2 courses for 2 people deal and we were not disappointed in the good choice for each course or the excellent food.

We had Fishcakes and Tomato Soup for starters, the latter served with delicious, open-textured bread. Mushroom and Tomato Linguine, and Rag Pudding (now there's a dish crying out for an advertising executive's makeover) were just as delicious. What should we have for dessert? A Deconstructed...More
