Lovely outdoor area to sit In on a sunny day. Food also tasted lovely. Disappointed food menu was sooooo small ( reduced due to restrictions ) but as we had a small child we just had to stay in the end but look forward to coming back when the normal menu is back.

The wine 🍷complimented the steak perfectly. The steak was amazing but was more medium than medium rare. Still yummy 😋

No vegan options on the menu. When I asked the server, she said the kitchen could only offer a salad with some broccoli as a vegan main course. Not even the chips are vegan as they are cooked in beef fat. Very disappointing menu selection for those with dietary requirements. Very slow outdoor service.

Hi , We found our first experience going out since lockdown a big disappiontment , even though it was sunny the area we were seated in was under cover and the patio heaters made no difference and we were so cold we left as soon as we had eaten , maybe go back but only when the weather gets better or can sit inside .

Our visit was most enjoyable, having the DJ out on the terrace made the atmosphere pleasant and relaxed, the service was excellent as always. There was enough choice on the reduced menu to account all within our party.

Server lovely. Service extremely slow. Menu suitable for evening meal. Nothing light to eat except crisps. Unless you knew the staff then you can come in, no reservation, sit on two chairs where you please and order just a portion on chips and dips. We’d asked just for chips because they were being served with the £25 steak so the fryer was already on. However, we were told no. Then that happens. I except as they are just opening back up service maybe rusty but the other can’t be excused.

Hi, Our table was not wiped down after the previous people left, as we watched them leave as us be sat. Given the current pandemic this is absolutely crazy. Service was really slow, had to ask to be served numerous times.

Love this place, the setting, atmosphere and class etc. Came for a bite and drinks and they had well prepared for the reopening. Heaters in the dining area cold have been a smidge warmer but on the whole spot on and enjoyable. Food slightly over priced but very nice . Wel’ll be back soon

Firstly, the staff who greeted and served us were friendly, welcoming, polite and professional. We were impressed how they coped in a stressful situation- however, the wait times were far too long. We had to request more than once for both menus and drinks etc. It was clear there wasn’t enough staff to cover the bookings. I did also feel that the £25 cost of the steak was also too expensive for the meal we received.

It’s the second time we’ve been this week and loved every second. At the prices of the food through, we’ll have to give it a miss for a few weeks before coming back.
