Varied & extensive menu choice. Tough task to choose. Reassuringly affordable wine list. Attentive & engaging staff. Delighted to hear it's dog friendly. Hard to beat in terms of a value dining experience.

We were in the back room where the atmosphere is not quite as charming as in the main room. Otherwise all was excellent

We really could not rate this place high enough. We decided to have our wedding there on Thursday 22nd August and this venue was more than perfect. Before the wedding The organisation of Clare was unbelievable. i thought i was organised but this lady put me to shame. As with any wedding, things changed all of the time. But this was not a problem for her, She was extremely flexible and put me at ease from the moment i met her. During the wedding. All staff were friendly and sociable . it felt like they were part of the wedding party and having just as much fun as we were. At the same time, delivery an outstanding smooth service. As always with weddings - speeches ran over, things got delayed but they always found a way to work through things and stay positive. The food was delicious. My guests spoke about the chicken alot. After the wedding A great breakfast. Service with a smile. And help packing final bits. Rooms seemed really spacious with high quality bedding and products. Very reasonable price for accommodation. Overall - this really was an incredible place to have the wedding and we felt the cost was extremely reasonable for what we received in return. I think this is a hidden gem that not enough people know about.

Food was fantastic and certainly amongst the best I have ever eaten HOWEVER £11.00 for a glass of White Wine was scandalous and does need looking at! Whilst I understand that Wine is an earner for you within the Food Industry charging at such a high rate will do you no favours and will take the gloss away from the food.

Food good, staff welcoming. The only complaint I would have was our table was very close to another, and every time the waitress served this table I had a backside in my face.
