We went for lunch and the location of the pub restaurant was lovely in the sunshine. The menu was extensive with daily specials added. We all enjoyed the quality of the food and the service was efficient and unobtrusive. Reasonably priced for the location.

We always make sure we visit The Bottle House whenever we are in the area. The food is quite simply outstanding. Last weekend I had the most divine goats cheese starter, followed by sensationally delicious cajun swordfish, followed by a dreamy lemon posset. All I...More
