Loved the food. Forgot that it was a Sunday night so a reservation would have been good. There was plenty of waitstaff and they were constantly checking on tables to empty dishes or see if they needed things. At the end we sat for 25 minutes waiting for our bill.

Great food and service. My husband had a pasta dish and I had chicken - both great. Desserts were excellent but giant. House wine and local beer on the advice of our server were great choices.

Myself and my wife have eaten in the venue a few times over the years . It is a nice place to eat and the food is good .I would say that it is a bit expensive for us and therefore would not visit it often.

When you walk in the door at around 6 on Saturday evening in the attempt to avoid the Saturday evening rush and pray the waitress will give you a seat without a reservation it’s a big obstacle overcome just there and then. On a family day out it’s all about the keeping the partner happy and ensuring she has a... More

We had a very enjoyable meal here and can only imagine it is a popular summer venue. Fire in the hearth in the bar made us feel very welcome. Service was charming.
