Although it's not the most extravagant restaurant my husband and I have visited, it has a special place in our hearts as it is here we've celebrated some important milestones. On this latest visit - a Thursday night - it was just as lovely as ever. The blonde hostess gave us excellent friendly service; professional without being too familiar. My husband had the crispy beef and I had the beetroot/salmon dish for starters. His main was hake and mine was the pork belly porchetta. We finished it off with a crumble and ice cream between us. The food was fresh, well cooked and tasty and arrived with just the right interval between meals. We shall keep on coming.

Lunch with friends, excellent service and willingness and attention by staff and chef to adapt main course dishes, with positive results for someone on a restricted diet - not many places we can go and get this sort of response - making for a quality experience.

Four adults and a lively 15 month-old toddler on a wet and miserable Sunday afternoon. Good choice of food, great service and lovely food! Great atmosphere too as it was cheerfully busy! The starter and dessert were particularly good- better than pubs in the area usually offer. The main course was traditional Sunday lunch fare- what was very pleasing, however, was that when we asked for extra vegetables and gravy they were delivered straightaway! Very good value too. We will definitely go back! Xx

Great food, friendly attentive staff and a nice atmosphere. Visited on a Saturday night with our two children. Restaurant was busy but service was great.
