This is a very comfortable restaurant, the menu is extensive. We had the three courses, each was excellent in presentation and quality, and the wine was very good. The service was outstanding. Compared with the quality, the cost was remarkably low. This undoubtedly represented our best eating experience of the year

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely meal here. The menu is quite interesting and unique, with lots of local produce to chose from. Everything we ate was lovely and the service was good too.

There were no vacancies for our first choice so we booked another date, however a few days later we had a phone call saying there was a vacancy our original choice if we wished to change. That was first class service and it sums up the restaurant from the staff, food, drinks and decor. Well worth a visit.

Welcome was great, ambience was great, service was great, but the ultimate has to be reserved for the food, magnificent!! As always I am not put off by a small menu, to me it signifies freshly cooked produce and... More

Everything was good, from the pate to the beef pancake for our starters to the excellent black beefsteak to the lamb 3 ways. We have never been disappointed by this restaurant.
