My husband and I had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was not too busy and all safety measures were taken. The staff was very friendly and polite and the food was very good value for money, as well as tasty. I will definitely be visiting again once the Covid restrictions are lifted.

A variety of portion sizes would be good - generally, the older one gets, the smaller the appetite.

Well, you did send me an email asking for feedback... I spent about £140 on meals and drinks for 4 adults and two small children. I don't think I got value for money and one pudding (profiteroles) contained a giant black hair. This put my daughter off so she couldn't eat it and also me as I had ordered the same. This was such a shame as we meet so rarely and this was the first outside meal they had had since Covid. The man serving us was very friendly - not so much the lady serving and she wasn't wearing the mask over her nose either. We were in a cold back room which did heat up after some time but it certainly didn't have an atmosphere. I do appreciate how difficult things are at the moment but you could have done a lot better and we might have been tempted to come back again if you had.

We went for a Saturday afternoon lunch as a party of six. Absolutely fantastic food and great value for money. A great range of menu options and an expansive list of specials, definitely the sign of a chef that has a real love for the craft. Also, the Manager made a point to thank us for coming and asking if everything was alright with our meal. Will definitely visit again!

Food was very basic. I disclosed my allergies at the start but had to ask for the allergy book. Despite this, allergens still made it onto my plate. Overall, a ver average experience
