Some of the staff were friendly & full of festive cheer, however, our staff member was very unhappy in her job and quiet abrupt! We were hoping to enjoy a family Christmas Eve meal but the meal wasn’t great...burger wasn’t cooked perfectly & hand cuts chips over cooked...drinks expensive especiallly soft drinks..disappointing service!

I feel safe to eat here during Covid the staff all wear masks are all excellent at their job and welcoming to the clients. The tables are well spaced out, and I observed the staff cleaning the tables very well after the tables were vacated I wouldn’t hesitate to go again during Covid times and afterwards when it’s over. I have been to other restaurants where masks were not worn but did not go back.

Sorry but the food was most disappointing, in fact the beetroot humous was inedible!! The samosa starter was poor and as for the chicken Wellington this was really bad!! Not a hint of tarragon, a sauce that tasted like gravy granuals and pastry which was rock hard!! The chocolate tart although the filling was nice, obviously the same pastry chef made the pastry as it was of the same quality, rock hard and inedible! I did complain on the night, but not to a great degree as it was our first night out for many months and quite frankly I didn’t want to ruin our evening. But we will not be visiting you again, and I will not be happy to recommend you to any of my friends! We spent well over £100 !!!

Booked 2 nights for meals and drinks Friday was perfect in every way service quality of food etc, booked the Christmas menu for Saturday looked forward to it all day what an absolute let down, starter was fine then came the Christmas dinner stone cold turkey role and roasties looked and tasted like they were made the day before really disappointing made even worse my a young rude manager who blamed the fact I asked for 15/20 min break between the starter an main !! This was absolute none sense it was old dried out food simple as that, only the fact I didn't want to spoil my wife's night any further I decided not to make a scene pay up and leave, sorry I missed he gave me and my wife a drink we didn't even want --not asked just chucked on the table as a way of making things better .. No apology or acceptance it was dried up rubbish, the young red head manager is in the wrong job !! No customer service at all !! Shear arrogance which completely spoiled our Christmas special night out.

Had delicious cocktails at our table (due to Covid restrictions) followed by a beautifully presented and tasty meal. We had the traditional Sunday lunch the next day which is the best roast dinner I have ever eaten. The meat was so tender, wonderful roasties and a unusual and delicious variety of veg.
