Several family birthday parties were also dining and the atmosphere was relaxed. There was a good selection of starters which were served and eaten and enjoyed, extra bread was offered to my son who... More

We went to the restaurant for a lunch. We have not been since the new owners have refurbished the pub and menu. Food is over priced and portion size is not for the small appetite. Starters or nibbles were poor I do not think a 3 1cm cubed pieces of goats cheese and different beetroot is worth the price tag.... More

We enjoyed a five course meal with perfect accompanying wines. The owners create a lovely atmosphere where quality food is served in a friendly and efficient manner. It's great to have this fabulous restaurant back to its best, if not better.

My family and I went for Sunday lunch on the 5th February to celebrate my 50th birthday. We were seated in the conservatory at our request as there were 9 of us. I took two helium balloons and a birthday cake to put on the table, which no one had a problem with. The staff were very friendly when we... More

Lovely food and excellent service. Had a lovely valentines meal. But it's the little touches that count. My wife's medication limits what she can drink, but I rang them up and they got a bottle in for us. Nice touch Totally recommended

First time back under the new management and first impression are that the refurbishment is very good. We were a party of seven and a child which was no problem for them to arrange the seating plus a highchair. During the food ordering my wife wasn't sure if the Beef Stew with chorizo would too spicy but ordered it anyway... More

Me, my mother and Grandad visited here over a month ago and I forgot to write a review about how pleasant our experience was! We visited a mid week lunchtime and were greeted by the new owners son.
