Looked at previous reviews and was a little worried about what it may be like. However, service has was good and food was tasty. The portions were massive but flavour didn't lack. Very enjoyable occasion

We went for Sunday lunch. The sun was shining and the setting lovely. Traditional Sunday lunch was the order of the day and didn't disappoint. We even had two lovely starters but dessert was a step too far thanks to the portion sizes. Staff lovely though the bar service could have been a little quicker with only one serving sometimes....

The menu promises so much but the food is of a poor standard . Rubbery scallops swimming in buttery water with pale undercooked bacon , how this can be described as a burnt butter sauce I just cannot comprehend.Same with the moules mariniere , the mussels shells were smashed , the sauce was overcooked so it split and it was...

Dropped into the French Hen last night got a table no waiting, that in itself should have rang alarm bells, the meal arrived my wife's steak was not cooked as requested and had to be sent back, I had chicken which was dry and minuscule to say the least,more like a chicken wing, the veg looked like it had come...

The evening menu does not start until 6pm, but the food was well worth waiting for. Prices are not cheap but reflect the quality instead. The choice is wide and if French food is to your liking then this place is for you. The various rooms have great character and the atmosphere is very relaxed and calm. The staff were...

Was amazed to be served something labelled "FAT SPREAD " instead of butter With my starter, and I have to say that that's exactly what it tasted of. How any resturaunt thinks that this is acceptable is beyond me, I told the waitress This and she was also surprised , but no one from management could be bothered to explain....

The staff are very welcoming and polite as soon as you walk through the door. The beer is superbly kept, with the two different ales we tried crystal clear and very drinkable. The fish in beer batter could not be bettered, very moist flaky fish as fresh as could be. The only let down was the chips not being homemade...

I've eaten lunch here many times and always been happy. However, I was very disappointed with the quality of my steak the other day. This would not have deterred me from giving the place another go but for the way in which the waitress dealt with my comment. When I told her that it was tough she replied 'was it',...

Just come back from a evening at this restaurant. My advice is make sure you starve before arriving to eat here as the portions are very large. I made the mistake of having a starter and was surprised at how big it was. The main course was enough to feed two. Yet saying all this i would go again. The...

We had a baptism last sunday and afterwards went for lunch, fifty of us, to this place. Excellent food and great service. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The venue was good, food was good and the staff a delight.
