We are dinner here with a group of 7. The service was slow and of a poor standard. The food was not comparable to that of two years ago, which had been excellent. Our overall review would be that we have no plans to return.

Place is clean and well presented. Staff are pleasant and attentive. Food is reasonably priced and comes in fair proportions. Went at lunch time so cannot say what evenings are like but nothing to complain about in the day.

Had an amazing 2 nights at this quirky place. Staying in converted old railway carriages. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. The food is fantastic and very reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning in the future.

What a lovely place. As you enter the main building you are in the bar with a log fire and off it is also a couple of railway carriages for dining . We were lucky enough to be seated in the carriage looking out at all the trains that passed. The menu choice is a mix of Greek and Italian.... More

Really great food, great atmosphere and staff are very helpful. We were a table of about 16 - the staff and kitchen coped just as well as they would have if we were a table of 2. Only 1 disappointment was they ran out of Tiramisu! Having had it before we knew how nice it was..... next time though!

Very romantic setting your own booth, a table lamp and a view of the railway. Food very good. We had a groupon voucher for steak and a glass of wine each for £20.

We celebrated my birthday using a Groupon voucher. We booked for 12 noon but it was much later when our starter arrived. We ordered rib eye steaks but only three left so the one person had to choose an alternative. Considering this was only mid day it seemed rather funny that they were sold out so early. One of the...
