This venue has long been a favourite of ours but on this repeat visit they simply knocked the ball out of the park! Every plate was cleared with each of our four diners full of praise for both the concept and execution of the dish.

Sunday lunch menus can often offer a much reduced choice (which is also true compared with The Wellingtons evening menu) but this offered wider range than normal with every dish having done innovation to intrigue and attract.

The traditional beef main was exemplary but our chief foodie chose the calves liver and said it was a 10/10 ~ a rarely achieve level of praise.

I could go on but simply look at the menu and go and treat yourself. By no means the cheapest in the area (nor the most expensive) but well worth your time and money!

Family meal last night. The only restaurant we regularly make the five hour round trip for and so worth it. Very tasty well cooked food. Creative menu. I had calves liver with an onion and blue cheese pancake. Beautiful, All meals well presented. Efficient and polite waitresses. Prompt but not rushed service. Homemade desserts to die for . Dreamy rice pudding. Very creamy huge portion. Looking forward to returning for a family celebration in a few weeks time.

Dropped in here for lunch on a Thursday on the way up North - should say that it was a pre-picked stop as this is well of any beaten path. Did wonder if there were any other patrons but once inside! not full but certainly well on the way. Beer well presented and a good range but the food selection was supreme. All on one chalkboard - would have preferred a menu as there was quite a queue to view the fare. We both elected to have soup and a half sandwich - yes, a half sandwich from the extensive list on offer. Such a good idea as a full sandwich with the soup would have been just too much.

"The Usual Suspects" .... mainly, like us, retired couples.
