Paid a return visit here for Sunday lunch based on previously good experience and again was impressed. Excellent choice range for Sunday lunch with 5 starters, 6 mains and 6 desserts. Presentation and taste combinations were very enjoyable. Would have liked to try all the starters! Shame that they do not do a platter of the starters!

Bright and pleasant atmosphere but only one set menu (with options) of which we were not advised when booking. Things got a bit messed up resulting in incorrect meals being brought to table resulting in delay.

We would like to again extend our sincere and unreserved apologies to the reviewer and her husband for this very regrettable incident. We had believed we had taken all necessary steps to avoid any such an occurrence during our extended shut down period but, for reasons we do not understand we clearly failed on this occasion. There can be no... More

Popped in here Friday night on the off chance of grabbing a bite to eat after arriving in the beautiful village of bradwell and although the dining area was full the very friendly barman suggested we could sit in the corner of the bar if that was ok, it was more than ok being sat next to an open roaring...
