Fantastic ... excellent food and the staff very friendly . One constructive criticism is the attention to detail on removing items from the table, ie empty water bottles and wine bottles and a bit sloppy in between courses .However the staff were young and possibly inexperienced, please do not take this as a negative they did an excellent job and we will definitely book again . The beef was to die for and the nacho starters were awsome ... well done ..

The food and service was very good. There was just a slight issue with the custard. I ordered custard with the crumble instead of ice cream. I saw that the waiter had written this down and/ or acknowledged it but it still came with ice cream. I mentioned it and they did bring some custard instead. On another note we all commented on how little custard there was with each dessert. We asked for some more custard and they did bring one little pot between us. I would recommend giving more custard per person. On the whole the service was great and the 2 waiters and waitress were very attentive. Thanks

Again, a great evening at this pub/restaurant. As the food is freshly cooked for everyone, do not expect a fast service. Time to relax and chat with your friends. The food was beautifully cooked, the plates hot, and enjoyed by everyone on the evening. Staff were pleasant and professional. Comfortably warm inside for relaxing.

Very disappointing,1 roast potato, gravy poured all over, should serve yourself from a gravy jug, vegetables poor, soup not very warm hardly any prawns in prawn starter, smallest xmas pud portion ever,i know it was Christmas Day and very busy, but for the price charged it was not good.

I had fish and chips everything was ok but I have had nicer fish elsewhere. I would visit your establishment again but would choose something other than fish. The dishes that friends had, lasagne and tapas were fine.

Hi, drink got spilt on one member of our group, she was very disappointed! Also one plate of food got forgotten which was a big disappointment. Food was good apart from that. Mike
