Average meal, appreciate was January so very quiet. Found out afterwards you were running Jan offers but we weren’t offered any of these.

It wasn’t even busy and we had to go up to the bar to order drinks as we waited for ages trying to get the attention of a waitress but gave up in the end. Food took about 45 minutes and people who’d ordered after us got theirs first. Food wasn’t great, the enchilada look unappealing and was covered in luke warm chilli. And the flatbread was burnt. I wouldn’t return following this experience

2 out of 6 guests thought food was poor - 2 said it was ok and 2 thoroughly enjoyed what they chose. Not good enough in my book. Surroundings absolutely beautiful. Staff really lovely and helpful.

As last year excellent meal with incomparable service and definite value for money. Extremely likely to book for Christmas again next year if they'll have us!

I thought that there could be more vegetarian options as there weren’t many options. Also it wasn’t clear that you needed to book Christmas dinner in advance so that was a little disappointing.

Great service and lovely staff, just one thought.... Custard.... We dropped lucky because it was an option thanks to the Xmas menu but it's not usually served. Sticky toffee pudding need to have a custard option 😉

We visit regularly but this time my meal was quite poor, I had the burger sliders, the chicken tasted very 'off'. I only had one mouthful fortunately but i had quite an upset stomach over the weekend. The waitress was excellent and did offer to replace but the other 2 burger were more than sufficient. Just very disappointing.

The food was excellent, particularly the menu choice. It was a birthday treat for my mum and we weren’t let down. I was disappointed to be led upstairs for our booking as it’s very loud and echo-y up there but where were sat it turned out to not be a problem, and a lovely view!! This was a first visit for both of us. We’re already planning when to come back. Thank you.

Lovely venue. Great menu choices, although sold out of fish and chips and this was only at start of Friday lunch service! But otherwise an enjoyable meal
