Nice walk from town (good 10 mins), lovely setting certainly had a lot of money put into the area, would be nice to sit outside when the weather improves. Went early evening on the off chance of getting a table (about 6ish), and were lucky to get one, as they were fully booked for the rest of the evening (they... More

The food was purely average and the service was abrupt. One member of staff in particular needs to improve attitude

First time here and not disappointed - lovely setting & good food. I had fillet steak and fresh veg with peppercorn sauce - it was cooked to my liking, was very tasty and enjoyable. For dessert I tried their version of Eton Mess, this was very nice but could have done with a bit more meringue. All in all a... More

We just stopped here for a drink mid-day after walking around town and along the canal. Very pleasant to sit on the patio and watch the narrow boats maneuver in the basin. We just had a beer and latte - no food - but found it all very satisfying.

Further to our previous poor review we visited again for lunch and the meal was excellent, well up to the expected standard. Therefore we felt it only right to make a further review.

The crumble is what it says hard to find the fruit... More

Lovely venue but set Menu was a real 'rip off'! Supplements for virtually everything when set menu was £30 per person anyway. Shame, as food was delicious.

Went there with son & wife for Sunday lunch. We were first ones in there but made the mistake of ordering a starter. After waiting 30 minutes we asked what had happened to it, told the communication between the bar and kitchen had broken down and the order had not been passed on. Arrived 15 minutes later - not worth... More

Cards on the table; I've not actually had a proper meal here. However I was recently at a networking event here and we had a nice two course lunch. We had some soup to start, which I "think" was squash. It might not have been. It was nice enough though. We then had scampi and chips. The scampi was good... More
