Alan & Joanne provide great food & friendly cosy service - the menu varies and is very good home cooked food, I usually have the Portobello mushroom and my husband had last time the Greek lamb fab, worth a visit

From the minute you are greater at the door till you leave you are in this couples front room. The food is so good and cooked for you also you will get a song from the husband. The menus is small but all fresh produce and a cozy atmosphere.

The Front Room is a nice place to share a meal with friends. The owners have made the place relaxing and the food is reliably good and home cooked.

The food is very tasty, a good selection of competitively priced wine and friendly service. I had the Greek lamb, my wife had the chicken and chorizo. Both were nice dishes, hot and full of flavour. The service was friendly and the restaurant was full booked, we were lucky to get the last table.

Good food from a limited menu that chances regularly. Our group had starters, mains and puddings between us and all were of a good standard. The wines available have been chosen to compliment the meal. We'll definately be going back.

We had the balsamic lamb steak, which was excellent, as were the potatoes and veg. Not enough vegetable for me (of course) but more came quickly when requested, and we weren't charged for them. Enjoyed the welcome snack with the drinks (though the drinks were not exactly quick coming). I had the chocolate fudge pudding, which I'm not really a... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hosts at the B &B 6 Castlegate and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the host was very accommodating and the food was excellent. The menu is limited but don't let that put you off and do keep in mind that the Front Room is only open Thursday to Saturday.

Plentiful cured meat and olive starters followed by good lamb steak and the best steak sandwich ever seen - tiny bit of bread underneath a huge steak. Inexpensive wines. Thoroughly enjoyable and will recommend to anyone.
