Food was great. Service seemed really disjointed. Took ages to get any service, ended up going up to the bar to order drinks. Seemed to be one lad doing all the tables which slowed down things. Went up to the bar to pay because again was waiting for ages for a bill. Lovely lady served me, gave me the bill, had my money ready and then manager jumped straight on the till to put in his order... left me and the lady waiting very awkwardly. Not great customer service!

My only criticism is that I felt the menu was not very extensive. I had some difficulty in choosing my food & my husband found it even harder, but having said that we did enjoy our choices. I feel it would be nice to have a wider selection.

Was looking forward to coming here, however was not told there was a wedding in the main restaurant. We put in the downstairs bar. It was dull and dreary 😔 There was no atmosphere we were put by an open door, there were no other diners. There was broken glass under the table. The food was lovely it’s just a shame it wasn’t the night I had planned

Food was beautiful and service was a little delayed due to a new system where the kitchen didn’t receive our order. However this didn’t detract from the experience. We will be back.

Lovely building, poor service and terrible food. The only part of the meal that was enjoyable was the mashed potato The Chicken & Ham pie was mush in a metal dish with a paper thin crust and the vegetables tasted dirty.

A very attractive menu and the quality of the food was excellent. I went from not being very hungry to scoffing 3 courses. As Arnie put it, "I'll be back"

I placed my food order with the waiter who proceeded not to right my requirements down. He then forgot our bread order and my steak arrived medium rather than Blue as requested. My steak was sent back and I waited another 20 minutes for my food to arrive. By which time my partner's food had come out and was going cold. At no point were we offered any kind of automatic compensation or apology.

An absolutely fantastic all round experience, the decor was inviting, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They were very aware of everyone and you weren’t waiting for an uncomfortable amount of time for service. The food and choice on the Sunday Menu was perfect, the portion sizes were bang on, to the point where I was full but not bloated. The desserts were awesome and an overall good value for money experience. Will be going again!!!!!! Thank you for a great lunch.
