I went here with family for an evening meal which was very tasty. Antony was looking after our table and was professional, polite, friendly and warm. To our surprise it was his first day which you would never guess. Great attitude and wonderful service

Had the most delicious halibut with wonderfully light creamy mash. Hubs had fish cakes. I like that there’s a light option (froyo and strawberries) on the menu, too. Overall a great experience.

Booked online nice & easy. We loved the menu but think we had too many favourites to choose from! Couldn’t possibly have eaten a starter, I had pork bell & scallops which you only get 2 but beautiful. Rich food & perfectly paired plates of...More

Have visited this restaurant before and was quite satisfied. However, something has changed as this visit was very disappointing. The starters are all quite expensive but poor quality. Deep fried Brie, for instance, is served with no accompaniment whatsoever, it's usual to serve this with...More

Starters were delicious the table had mainly brie but also the camembert. The burger as a main meal was very greasy so I'd opt for something different on my next visit
