Lovely meal , great atmosphere, the only negative comment was the Yorkshire puddings were over cooked but if they had been caught 10 mins earlier they would have been the biggest & best I’d ever had , this would not stop me going back every thing else was lovely.

Lovely cosy restaurant. Great for a romantic night out or to meet up in a relaxed atmosphere with friends. Food is first class and some lovely wines on the menu. We love this restaurant and each time we visit it just seems to get better.

I was very impressed with the service and ambience of the restaurant. It has been a while since I've been there and hopefully I will return sooner rather than later. My only criticism is that we had a late sitting for lunch (5:45pm) and it was noticeable that some of the ingredients were not freshly cooked but had been part of a previous service. Understandable as it was a late sitting but it meant in particular the roast potatoes had dried out and the yorkshire was cold and burnt. The gravy was exquisite and really made the dish.

Wonderful food, wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff but portion size a was disappointing. My husband had the pork and he had two tiny cubes of pork and the smallest amount of mustard mash. It wasn't much more than a Quinnell. He was disappointed as the food was delicious but there was just not enough, especially considering the price. He is not a quantity over quality person either, he just wanted a fair amount on his plate.

Just a lovely experience, greeted at the door with a warm welcome, shown to the table promptly, cosy yet intimate atmosphere. Menu is varied and the food very good quality at a reasonable price. The waiting staff are very polite and helpful, overall a great place and we can't wait to go again!

WOW WOW WOW. fantastic find, this is now my favourite place to eat. As soon as you step foot into the restaurant the owners are there to meet and greet with a big smile. Everything was clean and safe. We had the 3 courses for £15 and gosh such great value for money. I cannot wait to return once lockdown has lifted. Well done to the owners for such a fab place and food.
