You know how sometimes you overlook the little gems that are on your doorstep. L'Escargot is one such gem that I had overlooked for some time. Although we have visited many times over the years, for the last couple we had not been there. We went again on a whim one week day evening and we have promised ourselves we... More

Fantastic meal. Absolute delicious. Great hospitality. Will definitely be going back. Added bonus they were able to put a candle on my dad's pudding as it was his 70th birthday.

This really is a marmite restaurant as visitors tend to love it or hate it. The owners certainly have character but the food is excellent provided you like a lot of butter and cream and table d'hote menu is exceptional value. We have been visiting this restaurant for many years and have booked a number of family meals here as... More

What a lovely evening! My husband and I wanted some good food in a nice quiet restaurant and found it here. The food was lovely and service attentive. Steak perfectly done differently for both of us... Will definitely be going back soon.

We all had a lovely meal,each of us having something different and all clearing our plates!! Wine selection was good and service very good.

We visited Saturday evening and the food was superb. I don't know if the other reviewer was not listening when the vegetables were served but ourselves and other diners were quite clearly asked what they wanted and how much. The mussels were flavoursome and generous in portion size and guinea fowl was moist and tender ( 2 whole legs!) My... More
