I had the duck starter and lamb main - absolutely delicious! Our table also went for the fish pie and the trout and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope to be back soon!

Myself and 2 friends decided to have the set lunch menu yesterday, at £10 for 2 courses it's fantastic value and more than enough to eat.The coffee and complimentary shortie and tablet were excellent as was the wonderful waiting staff.

Never visited before and will certainly return. Good food, service, price point and ambient. Menu is not large but first class food. Tables are spread apart so not sitting on top of each other as per some other restaurants. Service attentive. Will certainly return.

I've been coming here for years and my palate always gets amazed. Feel free to go spend twice as much somewhere else but I'd say you're wasting money. Dishes here are cooked to perfection, drinks selection is solid and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. I hope I'll get to enjoy this little gem of a restaurant for many years to come.
