The normal serving staff are fantastic, but the restaurant was very busy and when asked about the wait, I was given the impression that it wouldn't be long. Yet we waited over 40 mins and the did his utmost not to catch my eye when we wanted to find out how long this would be. The rest of the waiting staff went out of their way to assist. Always tell customers there is going to be a wait and then it is their choice if they want to wait!!!

We came for my husbands 'surprise' 40th birthday dinner. We were seated in a wee private dining area which meant the kids could also feel free to walk when they needed to and not annoy other guest. The service was 1st class, very friendly and polite staff who went out of their way to make it a lovely occasion for us all. The food was amazing. Everyone agreed we come back again. So thank you to everyone for making us have lovely memories.

My son and daughter in law were married here 3 yrs ago and we have been back a few times for meals which was nice, but we booked for a meal on friday and it was awful. My daughter in law was handed a plate that burnt her and a waitress spilled a glass of iron bru all over the table and did not offer to clear it up or bring another to the table. We asked of we could change chips to garlic bread for the children and we were told it was extra. We definitely wont be back.

Visited to have lunch with my 90 year old Aunt. Chicken Tempuras x 2 were pale, undercooked and very soggy. Pretty basic; don't understand how chef could have sent them out the kitchen looking like that. Had I not been with my aunt I would have sent back to kitchen. Told waitress on leaving.

Food was delicious, service good - but sundae was far too big - should be sold as a sharing desert at that size - disappointing end to a lovely meal

Excellent as usual in all respects, and taking advantage of your January loyalty card offer excellent value for money. I also have to comment your chef on this occasion as my rib steak, medium to well done "NO PINK" was cooked to absolute perfection, not easy to achieve as others in that profession rather promote the undercooked easy variety due to their lack of skill .

Booked afternoon tea as part of a birthday treat for my 87 year old mother. Surroundings were very relaxing, with the fire burning in the corner. However, despite the fact that they appeared to be well staffed, we had to ask three times for the tea to be brought to us, after the sandwiches/cakes had arrived. All in all it was a pleasant afternoon.

SAlmon saltimbucca was very disappointing. It was very dry and there was very little veg and too much mashed potato... my husband felt the cheese on the lasagne was poor quality and ‘chewy’. The staff and restaurant were all good it’s just the food that was extremely disappointing I’m afraid, sorry..

Extremely disappointed in meal. Vegetable Fajitas consisted of what I assume was left over vegetables from normal menu. Never have I had diced carrot, turnip and peas albeit mixed with mushrooms and broccoli with fajita seasoning for filling. I would suggest carrot, peas and turnip are kept to accompany your main dishes.

Made online reservation with offer of 50% off food. Bill was presented with no discount given. This was corrected when questioned. But was it a genuine mistake or an attempt to get away without honouring the special offer. These mistakes leave a doubt in customer’s mind
