It was blooming awful, I wouldn't recommend going here again, if my life depended on it. Which was more upsetting is that, I emailed my issues and queries to be instantly dismissed and my comments would be taken on board. At no point has the Owner or the Chef attempted to resolve any of my queries, or to say that... More

Had a really lovely and relaxed lunch here. The staff were attentive and the food was really lovely. It has a lovely feel about it. I will certainly go again. I thought it was great value for money,despite the fact I was treated to lunch. Highly recommended.

Booked high tea for a casual hen do. Lovely food and settings but felt very rushed and didn't seem too happy that we wanted to enjoy the sunshine outside. Such a lovely place for afternoon tea will definitely return for cream tea but probably not high tea. Friendly staff apart from that.

family gathering, opted for the fan of melon to start with apricot coolie. Couldn't taste any apricots, this sauce was tasteless although fruit nice and fresh the actual melon had several hard places. Also had the salmon, which was fresh again, and so were the vegetables. The veg was cooked well, still had some crunch to them, which I do... More
