Had Sunday Lunch here yesterday just delicious, beef was so tender and tasty, large portion size with vegetables that tasted like vegetables! The food tastes made to order and does not taste mass produced which can be such a let down for Sunday Lunch. Although there was a large crowd we did not have to wait for our food and... More

A really lovely restaurant that I would highly recommend. The service was good. The decor is lovely and had a cosy atmosphere, seems to cater well for couples or larger groups. Good selection on the Sunday lunch menu. The food was reasonably priced, presented nicely and was very good....will go back again.

Really enjoyed eating here over the Christmas period.Cosy,especially if you're lucky enough to get a fireside chair. A great location to catch up with family and an equally comfortable location when dining solo.Varied menu.Good quality locally sourced produce. Beautifully presented food.Friendly staff. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

Popped in a few weeks ago for lunch with my partner. We didn't have a booking but were accommodated well. There was a good atmosphere with some Christmas parties enjoying themselves too. Food was delicious, we were so nicely full after our meal. We definitely return!

The restaurant was buzzing, we were greeted warmly by a friendly waitress who showed us to our table and looked after us really well for the duration of the meal. The food was excellent, best meal I've had over Christmas! There was about 20ish of us in... More
