Went in for dinner following a long journey northwards! The service was welcoming and the food was of good quality (the lamb was delicious!). I would definitely recommend if you are in the area.

Party of nine had a really great meal for a birthday celebration, excellent food and very good service despite the restaurant being very full and busy . It was made extra special by the young man playing the guitar and singing , he was super.

Arrived on a cold and overcast day to lovely log fires, a large table in a gorgeous room with plenty of natural light. This place has a really nice feel to it and would be a stunning wedding venue. Friendly, smartly dressed staff who were keen to please without being overly fussy. Liked the fact that menu had plenty of... More

This is a great choice for food, popular and busy, but comfortable, with a good atmosphere and plenty of space. Service is smart and friendly. It's a good choice for families and during our visit offered a choice of dishes for £7 each as long as you order before 6.45PM. The beer, such as Tim Taylor's Boltmaker at £3.60 a... More
