The menu was extensive (not expensive), plenty to choose from for all tastes, standard menu ( not so STD) specials board, Valentine's menu and an early bird which we ended up going for because of the choice, no skimping on portion sizes, it was so tasty and brilliant value for money, service was at a nice pace, relaxed atmosphere and the staff were really friendly. Woul defo recommend and will be going back !

The food was lovely although some parsnips wouldn't go amiss with the roast! Portions of meat not very big, only one slice of beef. Lovely ambience just wish service had been a bit slower, three courses within an hour! Didn't really get a break at all in between before next course was with us even though did ask for a break before dessert. Shame as would have liked to stretch meal out a bit more.

Well. I wasn't present, unfortunately but the family were most enthusiastic about the food and the occasion. Richard enjoyed himself so much he spent an inordinate amount of time over his food since he was so busy watching everything that was going on. The fare was so substantial with my food on top that no one had any room for anything else for the rest of the day and the beef and desserts were especially commended - the best beef like steak you have ever served!

A most wonderful Christmas Day lunch. The food was outstanding, the service excellent and a very festive atmosphere. The lobster cocktail, with the Bloody Mary sorbet was exceptional.

Hi, We chose this venue to celebrate my birthday and it turned out a good choice to make. We have been here before so we knew what to expect. Good atmosphere, good service and most of all good food. A bit pricey but you do expect to pay extra for a good experience.

Excellent game night.The 5 courses were excellent,attentive service and good wine. The final course was very rich and would have benefited from the addition of a few raspberries to balance the sweetness.
