Our day and night menus combine the very best of seasonal, locally sourced produce from the farms, coasts and woodlands right here on our doorstep in the heart of the North East. Our dishes take on a modern, British approach.
Really love it here, great setting and location, delicious food and great drinks, reasonably priced. The staff are really friendly, but a little too attentive! We were asked every 3/4 minutes if everything was okay with our meal/drinks etc etc by a different staff member each time! Ended up being asked around 15 times during the entirety of our 2 course meal. Was lovely but perhaps tone it down a little!
Had a fun time. Thanks
Food amazing, staff excellent, cannot fault anything, had a lovely early evening, will definitely be back 👍🏻
Lovely, freshly prepared food
Thank you so much for helping make my birthday celebrations so good! Excellent afternoon tea and brilliant service
Really good food :)
Food was amazing and really good value for money, the staff were more than accommodating. Would highly recommend.
Reserved a table for a hen party on a busy Saturday night and the service was fantastic! Happy to do table service and were helpful and accommodating. When we asked for water, they even brought jugs of free soft drink. Thank you for helping make it a really great night.
We sent two dishes back and were refunded for them. The food was terrible.
Hi Darren, I'm so sorry to hear your visit was not good. We set our standards higher than this. I would love to rectify this problem and have more information if you wouldn't mind. Would you be able to email me at [email protected] please? Thank you, Sam
Had a booking for afternoon tea. Staff were attentive, food and drinks were lovely and we had a really enjoyable afternoon!
My friend and I enjoyed our afternoon. We were there for 4 hours, and not once felt as though we were over-staying our welcome. Good range of food and cocktails a definite hit. We always try a new one and stick with an old favourite, the Flowerbed Martini. Staff were lovely...very helpful and attentive but not in an overpowering way.
We had the pre theatre menu and found the quality and taste very good. Staff were friendly and obliging on substituting items on our menu choice.
Food and service was excellent.
The best roast dinner we have had in ages Piping hot food, great service too
Delicious meal and excellent, attentive customer service Thank you
Couldn’t thank please to meet you enough. Table for 12 was ready and in the snug. Staff were polite, friendly and couldn’t do enough. We will definitely be back.
Service was excellent as always. Food was variable - starter was delicious; my son had steak main and that was very good; my mum and I had calve's liver with mustard mash, both of which were poor; desserts excellent. Disappointing as this was a Mother's Day present and I took her to somewhere I have always associated with pure quality.
Lovely food, well presented staff attentive
Lovely relaxed meal with very helpful staff Thank you
Great service, food was excellent! Only downside was the music was a little loud for a restaurant, struggled to hear the waiter/waitress when ordering as it was so loud.
Nice atmosphere in the restaurant and friendly efficient staff. Food was extremely poor quality and lacked little flavour. Expensive and a poor kitchen putting dismal food on the table
Hi Trevor, So sorry to hear about your experience with us. These are not the standards we set ourselves. I'm happy your service was great as we love our chatty staff. If you wouldn't mind, would you be able to email me at [email protected] so we can look further into this. Thanks, Sam
Eating out is not something I really enjoy, as I have several food allergies,so I reached out over the phone and Emma was amazing, I outlined my allergies and she Emailed me soon after with a list of what was safe. I was given the option to pre order and reassured all the way through. We arrived and were greeted very warmly, and were impressed with how tasty the food was, I really recommend the celeriac soup, it’s divine. Our bill was given to us and we catted with a member of staff who told us it would be her first night. She was fantastic, Emma was fantastic and the chef’s were superb (I’m still alive aren’t I)? Thank you to everyone for making what is usually a daunting situation for me an absolute delight. I will definitely be back 😊
The menu was misleading we saw confit of duck seved with pasta and caramelised shallots we thought it would be a crispy leg tasty shallots on pasta . Instead it was a large bowl of pasta with hardy any duck some semi cooked onions lots of tomatoes which was bland and tasteless. The dish was £16.00 ! The young lady serving us was wonderful which made up for the disappointing main courses however I would be weary to recommend as I wouldn’t want others to be disappointed .
Hi Heather, Incredibly sorry your meal was not up to scratch. We set our standards higher than this. I'm glad your service was great as we love our staff and their hospitality here. If you don't mind, would you be able to email me at [email protected] so we could look further in this please. Thanks, Sam
We had a really lovely girl named Laura serving us - she absolutely made our day, proper lovely and kind natured - thanks for making mine and my Ma’s St Patrick’s day lush- the food was also spectacular !
