The theme of this meal was wine. All courses had wine included in the ingredients. The Osso bucco balls were a delight and the sauce had a hint of sweetness. The crab soup had a little kick of paprika but the highlight of this course...More

It was a treat for me as a Christmas present. We were seated upstairs which I prefer to downstairs. Each part of the meal was delicious and I came away feeling satisfied and replete.

Interesting themed menus based on famous chef inspirations. The food is very well prepared, of good quality and presented as one would expect. Bring your own wine(corkage applies) and this works well. A fine local reputation and well attended.

Hi Cathy, We are a couple and are members of The Dining Club, they do cater for 2/3 people, or people on their own too, as well as larger groups. Hope this helps.

Scott (Head Chef & Proprietor) has been cooking for over 20 years and has previously won 2AA Rosettes for 6 consecutive years whilst running his family owned hotel in Boscastle, North Cornwall. Wife, Suzanne (Front of house & Proprietor) has been in the hospitality industry for 25 years and will provide a warm, friendly welcome and ensure that your experience compliments the food
