We visited for a colleague leaving meal and the choices for our party were very good, with plenty available from the set menu. Food was great with friendly service. Worth a visit.

Very impressed with Magic Mushroom and especially great value 3 course set menu on a Sunday. Highly recommend Lamb bon bons and Beef Roast was one of the best Roasts I have eaten out recently. Nice ambience and perfect place for a birthday meal.
