We made a same day booking for my Wife's birthday and we weren't disappointed. The food tasted amazing, very well presented, great atmosphere, location and the service was exceptional. Great value for money when you consider the quality of food. We'll certainly be coming back.

This was a first time visit for me and my partner. We visited for our 5 year anniversary. We have visited the area for the last 5 years as my partners nan has a holiday flat near by that we love yo visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal the food was delicious. We dont normally have 3 courses but as we liked a dish on each bit off the menu we went for it and was certainly value for money.

Very friendly, accommodating and competent staff. Service was very good. Unfortunately weren’t aware of/showed the [excellent] specials menu until we ordered puddings. Food was delicious but some portions were a little small and perhaps a prompt to consider ordering carbohydrates when ordering some dishes would have been helpful. Overall a very enjoyable and pleasant meal. Thank you.

Have dined here many times and have never been dissapointed, it was my husbands birthday and our daughters joined us as they've many times before and agreed that everything was 5*. We were even lucky enough to have no rain and sunshine. See you again soon.
