My vegan cassoulet was delicious. Impressed by your well spaced garden seating, and that you haven't resorted to damaging patio heaters. Really easy booking system too. Thanks!

Couldn't fault the staff they were really friendly and seemed to all be enjoying themselves too which was nice to see. My only criticism of our meal would be that the roast dinner could have been hotter, nothing a hot plate probably couldn't help with.

Breakfast was great, I had the vegan breakfast and my partner the full English. The only point I'd like to raise is that the vegan and veggie options are £1 less than the meat breakfast. I always struggle to see how when you take away animals produce and eggs the different in cost only comes to a quid. Other than that the food is lovely!

We had a table in the back corner of the restaurant. We did feel as if we were forgotten about at times. For example, it took 15 minutes to clear our table. Food was nice though.

Was a bit disappointed with the price of the food we ordered. Only a few chips with the burgers and the coleslaw was not particularly pleasant as it contained a lot of mustard seeds. No one checked we had scanned the Covid QR code when we entered. Service was a touch sporadic - half clearing plates then waited 10 minutes to be able to ask for the bill. Thought the use of doors was great to divide spaces up though.

Easy to book, well organised and a very nice place. Went there on a first date, I may have been worrying about how I looked n how it would go but one thing I didn’t need to worry about was the venue . Didnt eat but I hear the food is great. Good selection of drinks and staff were great.. would go again

Felt cold, food was average, very over priced and to top it all we had a £10.45 service charge, will not be returning.
