Hi, good set up for the weather and great seat covers, blankets and hot water bottles. Starter excellent but main meal - pizzas was made early and so all meal rushed. Staff very apologetic and gave us a free drink. My pizza was however not nice, tomato sauce very tart, like passata from a packet and hardly any spinach or cheese. Disappointing.

This was a second visit as first was very good. However this time was wet, we had been told no further tables available under the shelter or in the little hut, so we sat outside in our own! Fortunately we had a brolly! But because we were only table out there we felt a bit forgotten, drinks took at least 20mins & we had to ask in the end.. 2 of party had beef burgers, which looked great. I had the carrot burger which was really disappointing, so bland and stodgy. The avocado topping was nice, but again bland, needed some lime & chilli! We did finally find the blankets & hot water bottles, so that made a big difference! Our waitress really needs to remember her mask too, she kept pulling in down to talk which misses the point, especially if she’s going from table to table. She was serving NHS key workers & we know they’re horrible, but she’s mixing taking orders, so needs to appreciate importance. I will return as I know we were unlucky with weather, but service & veggie food was disappointing this time. Really hope inside opening goes well!

Been coming for the last three weeks (Fridays) and each week you have got better and better. Very friendly and efficient service from welcome to farewell This time I took away a burger for my tea and that was a treat too - very tasty. Big thank you to the helpful waitress that went out of her way to sort out an extra carry home bag as I was on my bike! Well done!

Booked for birthday luncheon 12th May. On arrival told that there was a problem with cooking in the kitchen and no hot food was available except pizzas. As I had booked you had my contact details and I thought the least you could have done was to contact me to tell me of the problem. This would have given us the choice to consider an alternative venue

Staff were all lovely, pleasant and apologetic. But the menu was limited to only nibbles, pizza and puddings. No starters, no mains due to kitchen works. This was meant to be a birthday treat. I think the limited menu should have been told to us before arrival or at least before seating us so we could decide to go. The cost of the meal was £53 which was high for 2 people, considering what we had. I particularly think £6 for one scone is ridiculous. Adding a service charge to the bill when the menu was reduced and only 2 people were in the party was cheeky, I felt.

In spite of weather and restrictions I and my friends had a lovely meal. Three of us had the cod which was cooked to perfection. Very good service.

Staff very friendly. Good set up with the marquee for outdoor dining. Great idea to supply blankets and hot water bottles. A little disappointed that the choice of main course was not more extensive, especially for vegetarians. However, understand that in current circumstances that may be necessary. Lemon posset dessert was delicious! Hope to be back in summer.
