We went to celebrate my wife's birthday. The baked Camembert that my son had was one of the best I have tasted, the smoked salmon out of this world and the smoked duck, beautiful. The fillet steak was huge and full of flavour and cooked perfectly, and the tuna was to die for. Desserts....what can I say?! Not disappointed either.... More

This was a special over a weekend. Rather than opt for a Sunday lunch we went for one of the fish specials. It was presented lovely and tasted amazing. I can't wait for it to return.

The food was heavenly with a great choice for all dietary requirements. The staff were exceptional, so very friendly & welcoming. In fact they are the best staff in a pub/restaurant, we have ever experienced. The pub has been refurbished to a high standard which adds to the whole experience. We look forward to going again!

For mains I went for the Tuna Nicoise which was a great choice and so reasonably priced. Jen had the lamb cutlets which she struggled to get through... More

"Excellent" please read on: This was my first visit following a recommendation from a friend. The first thing that struck me was the warm welcome from Danielle who seems to run the place with her husband. She introduced herself as soon as we walked though the door, showed us to our table and asked if we would like a drink.... More
