Lovey food, very friendly, attentive staff However the sevice charge wasn’t mentioned until we received the bill at the end of the evening, hence the low score for value for money.

Good food and menu. However, very small dining area and disappointing background music gave an uneasy ‘hushed’ feel for a Friday. Pie and mash for £16.50 also feels a little pricey.

Warm and friendly service. Amazing food and great building. We came for lunch and the chef makes the fish and chips extra special with all those crispy bits you want but never ask for ;) will definitely be back.

We enjoyed the food and the service was fine. We thought where we sat (bythe fireplace) was rather uncomfortable. Overall we would be pleased to return.

Food surpassed expectations, service was excellent. The only reason why we won’t be back sooner is due to our lack of babysitters!

We had a lovely evening. The service was of a very high standard. Our waitress, Katie, was excellent. The food was tasty and very well presented. The mussels were particularly good. We ordered cheese to end our meal and would have liked more than two varieties of cheese and a larger portion, perhaps with some grapes/quince jelly...The two varieties were delicious, there just needed to be more. Thank you.
