Mine fish was about 2 inches long by one inch wide and half and inch deep. The vegetables were similarly skimpy. I went for lunch, not a tasting session and have been... More

Highly recommended for lunch. Always an interesting menu with local produce. Fish and chips highly recommended.

Wife and two Daughters for lunch to celebrate my elder Daughter passing her exams. Cost for 4 was around £100 but well worth it for the quality of the cooking and wonderful sauces.

Have eaten here several times before. Menu changes regularly although retains a couple of staples. This not pub food. The quality is great and consistent. No it's not the cheapest but you get what you pay for.
