The atmosphere is really nice the place can be full and you still feel like you have privacy. The food is lovely and really good value for the money. They change the menu regularly and the service is really friendly. The only thing I would say is that sometimes you have to wait for a while in between finishing your... More

Came here for lunch on NYE as couldn't get in anywhere else due to early closure. Bar staff were really nice and helpful, drinks were good. Food (for the price) wasn't great. BOGOF I most certainly will... The deal of getting one meal free is null and void due to the prices being double and the plates being small. The... More

We met a friend here (it is convenient, with parking). Good variety to menu but only good value if you have the two for one deal. The portions are small (frankly Tesco's lasagne is better), the salad was tired and my companion who had the curry had to request the salad and mango chutney (which in the photo it came... More

Approx 15 of us were booked in, we had been before and on that basis were looking forward to a similar menu choice - weren't disappointed. Several of us had breast of chicken with a Somerset cider sauce, the breast was tiny, over cooked, dry & tough. The remainder of the group had various meals and sweets and were happy... More
