We were staying at a local hotel and booked The Apron Stage in the afternoon for an evening meal. The restaurant is small and intimate but with plenty of space. Our meals were superb and Graham, who cooked for us, was friendly and engaging. It was a really excellent evening and we would recommend this restaurant to anyone. It was... More

Went for dinner here having been curious about what is a very small restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and the entire evening was just lovely. The food was excellent, the service very efficient, friendly and yet never intrusive. It may be small, but it certainly delivers on all fronts. It feels very comfortable and is just a nice place...

Cosy, yes. Fun, absolutely. And the food, well, it was outstanding. A simply lovely time. It is a restaurant like no other we've seen and, from our couple of visits, simply works as a delightful evening.

Lovely intimate little kitchen restaurant. We had read the positive reviews but we're still surprised by the quality offered and elements of theatre presented. Well worth a special trip.

Booked for a meal for four. Front of house attentive, pleasant and a 'happy person'. Chef works hard in a small kitchen and you can see everything being prepared. The food was excellent and it's well worth a visit.
