We came when many were not eating out due to the Coronavirus but felt happy to do so. The restaurant was empty but the attention to hygiene and service excellent. We will be back to experience the atmosphere properly once things return to normality.

We only went for breakfast and coffee but it was beautiful. Service was poor. Took coffee order without letting me say which coffee. Eggs were missed off then had to wait quite a while. Then had to wait quite a while longer for sauces. Then gave up waiting for the bill went to the counter to pay. There were only two other tables in there and two girls serving so no excuse

We had a really nice breakfast, the food tasted great and even with the Coronavirus worries going on, our waitress was brilliant. I don't know her name, but she was blonde, 5"6 and pregnant but still working. Would definitely come again, thanks.

We came on Sunday 15th March for the Steak Sunday - Tomahawk Steak for 2. Well what can we say... the food was stunning, cooked to perfection and served beautifully. Absolute value for money too! Also a special mention for Jake who provided exceptional service throughout the evening. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended.

Always had amazing food. Would not go for Sunday lunch again. Food was lovely apart from the menu. Could only have a pork chop which tasted charcoal or a steak. Was expecting slices of meat for a Sunday roast. Other than that excellent food.

Our table for 6 was not ready for nearly 30 minutes after the time it was booked for and the quality of the Sunday Roast has declined massively since I made my last visit.

Batman was great really helpful on the cocktail front and made the night with a surprise for my wife’s special birthday. Waitresses at dinner were great also, attentive but not overbearing. A great place on our doorstep. Keep it up!!

Wonderful afternoon and all of the staff are wonderful. The only very little niggle I have is that some of the sandwiches were slightly dry around the edges, however maybe this was where there crusts had been cut off and is was the edge of the crust. We were lucky enough to have more sandwiches brought to our table (not that we had asked for them, they were just offered to everyone in the room) and they were lovely. The service is very attentive and the staff certain make you feel very, very special. It was a belated Christmas present for my mum and it was wonderful and my daughter also came with us. Second time we have been and it certainly wont be our last time. Look forward to going again.

We had a lovely evening . The steaks were amazing ! The menu wasn’t massive in choice and we didn’t fancy any of the starters , but we thoroughly enjoyed it . Yes it wasn’t the cheapest place but for a treat it felt rather special and our waiter was really accommodating. Thank you we will definitely be back !
