Very good menu. What I would call 'fancy food'. Delicious food and warm and friendly atmosphere with ample seating and lots of cosy little nooks

Lovely food for a special occasion. The staff were friendly, they went through the menu with us explaining where the meat was supplied which is a lovely touch. Will definitely revisit. Delicious food, best lamb I've had since moving here from Wales.
