Came for a Hen weekend and could not fault anything about our brunch. I would give 5 stars but there is always room for improvement. :-) Thanks for a great couple of hours and accommodating all our changes, you must have a very patient chef. Thanks again

It was unfortunate that there were chicken bones in 2 of the 3 chicken and leek pies we ordered but they were delicious. The manager and waitress handled our complaint superbly and were really friendly and apologetic. We had them taken off our bill and complimentary desserts. Once again thank you for your professional staff and delicious food.

We were waiting over an hour for our Sunday roast and then when it arrived some of us had to send the food back because it was cold. However once warm it was very nice and money was taken off the bill.

We booked online and when we arrived they had no booking under our name luckily you had a table. We order our drinks and food then an hour goes by and we wonder where our food is we go to the bar and they don’t have our order? They offer us a meal on the house but we were so disappointed we just left

Whilst the staff were friendly enough, it can be a bit annoying when you have to order a drink three times before its delivered

First visit here.... loved the place and decor and soundtrack..... however the food took longer than I would have expected a breakfast to, the muffins were quite tough and cold, the waiting on staff were a bit slow on coming over and asking if we wanted any more drinks.... however I would come back and try this place again.

Had the Sunday dinner fondue. Thought it was overpriced at £15 each for small piece of brisket, 3 roast potatoes between us and veg (I don't the eat veg that was on plate so paid £15 for one and a half roast potatoes and small piece of meat, plus yorkshire pudding. Fondue didn't work at all for this meal, food would not stay on fondue fork, had to ask for spoon to get the gravy, wan't good or easy. Food was also just warm as it was served on a cold wooden board. Better served on a hot plate to keep food warm, food was luke warm and cold by time got to finish meal. Won't be returning for this, we left thinking we should've just had a standard roast dinner, maybe we would have gotten more potatoes and better value for money. :-(

We enjoyed the food and the live jazz band. Our waitress (can't remember her name but young blonde lady) did everything she could to make sure we had a good time including organising a table nearer to the band for after our meal and making me an off-menu mocktail, which was delicious and much appreciated at 6 months pregnant when interesting drinks options are few and far between! Thank you.

Staff are friendly. Good beer selection. Food was poor (dry, over cooked and small portions of meat for a roast, cold veg). Two of us had the ‘fondue’ option and no better than other mains.

Amazing! Booked for a ‘Bottomless Prosecco Brunch’ with my daughter I can’t fault the atmosphere, food, service and care taken by the staff to look after customers. Would most definitely recommend and will definitely be back! 🤗
