We've eaten here before many times and never been disappointed but today we felt very let down. There was the usual warm welcome and pleasant ambiance but following the arrival of our starters which were fine, my husband and I waited an unusually long time for our main courses (40 minutes!). We'd both ordered the small fish and chips which... More

Great food, service and atmosphere. Have a cheap set menu for those that don't want the slightly more expensive menu. Great courtyard to eat outside in the summer. Good restaurant for couples. Wouldn't recommend with children.

I've been here before - when it was Jim's yard, in fact, if I'd been diligent enough my last review would have been off the scale. It really was ever so good and I was looking forward to this visit. So here I am again - did it match up, sadly no, but how good was it? Tempura king prawns......hmm... More

Popped in for a spot of lunch and the best pork chop I have ever tasted. Great food, imaginatively presented, beautifully cooked but not too fussy. Good portion sizes too. Service was attentive and friendly. Good choice of reasonably priced wines too. We'll be back.

The Service was appalling and the food very average. Won't be going again and wouldn't recommend. A very disappointing evening.

I've eaten lunch at the restaurant regularly, and it has always been really good. However, it appears to have changed hands as the cooking, although not bad, is nowhere near as good as it was until a few months ago. The lunchtime menu is smaller than before, with fewer choices, and there are now a number of 'light bites' which... More

I went there with a friend to celebrate our birthdays and were definitely not disappointed. Food and service were excellent and we will definitely go back.

My partner and I had a meal here last saturday night. The service and ambience were right and we were looking forward to a good meal. When the onion soup was delivered to us we were beyond impressed and joked that the rest of the meal may struggle to live up to the standards of this amazing soup! Seriously, I... More

I visited this restaurant with my family and partner to celebrate my father's birthday. Following a previously good meal with pleasant service last year I was confident of a good evening. Regrettably, the food was poor and the service was worse. My partner chose the chicken dish which arrived cold - and on a cold plate, which I can never... More
