Me and my partner visited this lovely restaurant last night. There was a separate menu to order from for Valentine's Day and a glass of fizz on arrival. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was lovely and the service was admirable. We will definitely be returning for one of their designated Steak/Mexican nights. I highly recommend trying this brilliant place... More

A wholesome menu, well presented and very appetising. Would recommend the 'Queenies' (I think they are female scallops). The steak was cooked to absolutely perfection. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly

We ate here when they were holding their weekly steak night - a rib eye steak cooked to order with a free drink. It was served with chips and a salad garnish. It was well cooked, and the service was good. One of the ladies who served us was really helpful, and stayed and talked to us about the island... More

Comfortable and very pleasant staff. It was Mexican night and the meal was excellent and timely. My first draught beer was off, but was changed instantly with profuse apologies. We'll be back.

Fabulous! The most comfortable bed I've had in a hotel; variety of breakfast choices - staff very friendly, service with a smile and couldn't do enough for you. Wed steak night was excellent. I hope to go back next year for a biking break.

Lovely bar and restaurant with a pub feel. Service and food was well over expectation. We attended the Sunday night pub quiz and had the best time. Such a lovely atmosphere :) Highly recommend.
