Sunday lunch treat. Beef served rare so looking forward tender meat but 3 of us found it hard to cut and difficult to chew. Small portion of roasties too and gravy thin so definatly not what was expected. Disappointed sorry. Pleasant setting and staff

Excellent wine, good beer and freshly cooked tasty food. My duck was excellent, the fresh vegetables, the chips with the delicious steak were freshly cooked not frozen, and my husband really enjoyed his first taste of lobster

This had good reviews but our pizzas were decidedly average. Service was prompt and staff were helpful though.

The Pizzeria can be a noisy place when there are lots of people there. The staff were polite and efficient and pizzas are made to order. I had a 4 cheese pizza which was tasty but £10 is far too much to pay!

No real negatives about this place (the pizza café round the back) but not a lot of stand out positives either. I had the calzone which was a bit on the bland side as was the wine. It was a very quiet night too which...More

Hello, Sorry for the late reply. Yes, we are dog-friendly, which means that doors can eat with their owners, so long as they are not too wet and smelly or disturb others. You may meet Jasper, our terrier, when you come.
