Following a superb meal last autumn in one of the outdoor PODs, my family wanted to have a special meal together hence booking on the Saturday. This experience was very different with the table offered being a bench with no cover or heater and a wait of 35 minutes with no order taken, sitting in the wind and cold. The family made the decision to leave and end the unpleasant experience. I personally had recently had spinal surgery and so the seating option was untenable for me and so had had to return home. The ratings reflect that despite a specific request and follow up call to check we were going to be in a POD, this was not the reality plus we did not get to eat and so cannot rate the food.

Service was way too slow, 20 mins before we were asked for our drinks order and multiple times had to chase up on drinks. Way too under staffed.

First time we have eaten here, and will definitely be returning. The service was excellent, very friendly staff and food excellent, with generous portions. We really enjoyed it, can't wait to try it when inside dining opens.

Nice setting, great food, however service was poor, we had a long wait between courses. We ordered floater coffee's and were advised that they would be deconstructed and we had to do them ourselves, which we did and the coffee was luke warm when it arrived. We had a lovely time, shame about the ending with the coffee's which was rather disappointing. Considering we spent quite a lot of money, including 3 bottles of Prosecco, to ask your customers to do their own Floater coffee's is a bit of a cheek.

Really pleased with the level of service we received with our meal, even under these current ‘Covid’ times. Great food, reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend 😄

Excellent, friendly and helpful service. Blankets,heater and attentive staff. Only had the bread platter/salad starter but was disappointing. Tasteless dressing, uninspiring. All else was great.
