Starters and desserts were very good, but we both felt that our main courses were over-salted.

After my wife and I were celebrating her birthday at the cross they got our order incorrect and gave us Alchol when we specifically asked for non alcoholic beer, I know it was a genuine mistake, but I have drank for over 5 years and my wife over 6 years, we didn't even drink at our wedding or me on my stag do...Just would have expected more from their. Although the food was incredible they did reduce the bill by about£ 17 considering I still left tip for nearly that anyway.... maybe I should have said more on the night but didn't want to spoil the evening

Lovely family dinner, nice and relaxed with our kids. Great tasting menu, and chef kindly did a soufflé desert for my daughter, as she really wanted it instead of the pudding on the tasting menu!

The menu felt a bit limited and As duck wasn’t a meat dish we’d go for we decided against the testing menu. Service was excellent although the wine waiter smelt of BO which was a bit off putting. This may seem an odd criticism but I really do not like the lilac wall colour. I think a darker colour - green or blue tone would be more classic to compliment the wood panelling.

We first heard about the restaurant at a food festival in althorpe a few years ago. The chef was doing a demo. His food looked great and he seemed like such a nice guy we made a plan to visit - 2 years later we eventually made it and kicked ourselves for not going sooner! Food was excellent. The souffle best we have had. (We ordered 3 desserts between 2 of us because we couldn't resist the souffle! Lol) Beef pie - epic. Exactly the type of comfort food for this time of year and wow it had such flavour! I wish they did take-aways! Pasta quality on the ravioli exceptional (although the lobster filling was not as tasty as the other dishes). Everything we had was excellent and the menu choice was perfect. Also enjoyed the champagne cocktail and the choc.orange truffles.....yum! Service was fantastic, friendly and efficient. Whole team made us feel welcome. The lunch menu was amazing value for money and we will definitely be back! Thank you.

So impressed with the lunch menu and the courses we chose, free glass of wine and the wonderful friendly service we received. There was a very large party (I think only my husband and I were the only diners not part of the large group) which was quite noisy but not enough to stop us enjoying ourselves. We were most impressed that our food came at regular intervals - not easy when also serving large tables of diners expecting all their courses at the same time. So congratulations to chef and team and to the waiters and waitresses.

The meal was a treat from myself to my husband who is a chef! He really enjoyed the food, (every course was a delight), the fact that we were sat right by the kitchen & he could watch the preparation & service, relaxed atmosphere and the experience as a whole. An absolute hit!

We had a really delightful lunch there yesterday, to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Both food and service were really good. This was our first visit, but certainly not our last!

Faultless food again but service was lacking. Understand it was a busy Saturday night but it shouldn’t take over 4 hours for a 5 course tasting menu. We weren’t offered a cheese course, probably because it was so late. I had to ask several times for a drink and for our water to be filled up. We’ve been before and had faultless service, it felt like the restaurant was missing a restaurant manager taking control in a busy period.

Went on a quiet thursday night but all staff were still focused and provided excellent service. Tasting menu was excellent, wine pairings sometimes a touch unconventional but still worked. Staff were knowledgeable and happy to help. An excellent meal.
