The food was delicious. It was a Christmas Party and the power went because the weather was very bad but the staff and management dealt with it all and the managed to serve everybody with hot food. The staff were friendly and helpful

Visited here on a Sunday evening in mid November. Read the reviews about this restaurant don't know what the fuss is about. Average food in an 80's looking place, a step up from carvery. The wine by the glass is tiny and probably best as its vile paint stripper. If u r stuck ok but a lot better about.

Had dinner here Saturday 15th October at 7:40pm, with friends politely greeted and shown to our table, staff very polite and friendly. Food was divine and couldn't fault it, from starters to desert. I had the duck which was perfectly done and a decent portion. Friends had wine I had to stick to bottle beer as they don't have draught,... More

We had 2 four course meals and a bottle of red wine @ 22e, which is quite good at any restaurant. 26.50e for the four course, that's what you call value.... More

I had read reviews and expected great things. We drive quite a distance. However from the moment we arrived, it was clear that standards must have slipped. We sat down at 6.30. The floor around our table was filthy, it hadn't been swept from the night before or lunch service perhaps. We weren't asked if we would like anything to... More
