Nice choice of menu, with lunchtime special two course for £8.95. Good choice for every palate. Most had the special, but I had the homemade lasagne which was delicious , with Sticky Toffee pudding for dessert. The nicest STP I have ever had. Staff are pleasant and friendly. We are all hoping to return in the next few weeks.

Had a problem with my main course but the staff resolved my issue efficiently. Venue is lovely. My only slight issue is with the lack of wine knowledge in the bar. Asked... More

We visited there with friends on a Tuesday between Christmas and New Year the intention was to have a few drinks and then grab a bite to eat. However we were told that they were not serving food due to a private party. The atmosphere was good and the surroundings good also as a lot of money has been spent... More

Had a table for four - three courses and each as delicious as the other - good size portions piping hot and extra gravy, sauces and veg all provided at no additional cost. I'd definitely... More
