Met friends for lunch and very pleasantly surprised, excellent choice of food, we all ate different starters and mains and were all very satisfied, lovely to have a plentiful supply of fresh water replenished regularly and fresh bread and butter at NO extra charge, good wine list, faultless service, Thoroughly recommended

The portion sizes were just right and dishes excellent. We also ordered beer... More

Came recommended, the food was a little bland, and the portions were really small.. Lovely conservitory but we were seated at the back of the restaurant even though my hotel had booked way ahead. The waitress was lovely, the waiter not sure if he was enjoying his job, the whole experience came across as give a little, take a lot

Thank Trevor S
