New menu is lovely and great value! Service was brilliant! Still the best eatery in the area...faultless on this visit as it was on our last visit and the visit before. Consistent and polished services. Well worth a visit...the Sunday lunches are amazing too...!!!!!

Superb menu and food with excellent service. We had a lovely round table. Most of the group had two starters which were mouth watering. I had pork loin with dauphinoise potatoes - delicious.
