We have not eaten Sunday lunch here for some time but will be back again soon. The staff were attentive and efficient and the food from the Special Sunday lunch menu was very good and very good value. Although the excellent risotto was down as a starter only one of our party had it instead as a main course which... More

We were very impressed by the service at this restaurant, the lady on Reception was very welcoming & the waitress who also tendered the bar was very polite & efficient. The food although a short menu (which we prefer) was excellent, tasty, imaginative & well presented at an amazing price. A traditional formal dining room, it was ideal to chat... More

The food is outstanding and at top level, always guaranteed, across the whole menu, so something for all the family or group to enjoy. This is all supported by fabulous and original neo-Georgian...

A group of 20 met and ate in the Sage restaurant last week and enjoyed a good menu including fishcakes for starters and sirloin steak for a main course finished off with Christmas pudding. Tasty food well cooked. Good service and good value for money. recomended.

We experienced poor service, Although the portion sizes were adequate, food was missing, The interior decor was in need of decoration. Could do better. We were checking the place out for Christmas Day lunch. That's £150 we will be spending elsewhere.

As a group of about 15 people who regularly attend for a meeting, the food last night and the service were very good. There were good choices on the menu and the food served was hot and tasty. Well done.

There was a rose for the ladies on the table and rose petals were scattered on the table. It is a small intimate restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Starters of ham terrine were delightful and the lamb for main... More
