Great choice on express menu. Lovely outdoor area with amazing scenery. We had wonderful service with very friendly and attentive staff. Only criticism is that the beer glazed chicken is quite dry-could do with a sauce or gravy maybe. Thank you for a lovely meal in an amazing setting.

As a regular at this venue I have always been very satisfied but I found last night's meal a bit under par. Starter bland, steak ok, sides again nothing special. Service from Tosin and Sam very good.wiill not return until everything is back to normal.

Very enjoyable lunch, attentive waiter and quick service. Good social distancing with tables well spaced out. Delicious three course meal from The Express Menu.

Food was very nice but not sure I would have paid full price. We used the eat out voucher. Service was a little slow but all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Will come again.

Didn't even know this place existed until I saw a recommendation on Facebook. Thought we'd give it a go and we were really impressed. Lovely to eat outside on the terrace. Great food and excellent service. Would definitely recommend.

Last night was my first time dining here. I brought my teenage daughter for a treat for the Help to Eat Out and we both loved it! We had lovely drinks on The Terrace in the sunshine before we were shown to our table. Every single member of your staff were welcoming and friendly. Your staff are a credit to you - especially the man on the main reception, his personality is fab!!

Negatives: salad is not really a salad but a garnish. A bigger and richer portion to complement the meat would be highly appreciated. Glad we have ordered the sides, otherwise the meal was nearly keto. Clients that came for a drink in the garden qere leaving an absolute mess. Not the staffs fault. Found it disgraceful to see people not appreciating the effort put into the upkeep of the garden area. Service should have the power to let the clients know thay they are being out of order. Maybe would benefit from a bin in the garden? Positives: service. Our service was absolutely lovely. Very professional and looking after his tables. Wine tasting offered. 5 stars. Very positive impression made. Setting: beautiful setting. Well kept and clean area apart from the rubbish left by the out of order clients. The swing is absolutely magical. Wine: beautiful taste. Very rich and well stored. Served at the right temperature. Meat: well made and delicious. 5 stars Desserts: sticky toffee pudding was delicious. Highly recommended! And at a reasonable price. Overall rating:5/5. Cannot recommend more. We had a beautiful evening with an amazing service and delicious food. Absolutely lovely. Little things like the receptionist opening the door for you on leaving have made a difference to the experience as well. Very luxurious. Money well spend. Will be back.

We were surprised with the lack of face coverings on the staff , also that all cutlery, glasses and menus were handled by staff on handing out.
