Beautiful place. Lovely polite waitresses. Nice food. Gorgeous strawberry mojito. The only downside was the amount of flies that were in our dining room. All the guests were commenting about them. There must have been about 60 on the ceiling above us.

My chicken supreme was so dry l could only eat a few mouthfuls. I complained and asked if l wanted another cooked but said no as lnowhad been put of. I was offered a free pudding. I chose cheese and biscuits which were fine but later heard another diner being given a choice of cheeses which l wasn’t. So a disappointing birthday eve meal. The wine and cocktails were nice. Used to love coming to you but not sure now, sorry

Friendly, efficient service, wide choice of well prepared dishes. Starters perhaps a little expensive but otherwise all dishes appear to be good value. The Sunday roast beef, enjoyed by all four members of our party, was excellent.

A hot and busy day (Flying day down the road) not helped by a 3.15 booking meant some of the menu was unavailable. But ... terrific liver and bacon, plus rhubarb crumble!

All very good. Good menu choice. Nice atmosphere. Wasn’t overly keen on the magician, but that’s just my personal preference, and didn’t put me off overall.

My companion enjoyed his curried haloummi. I had the sea bass but found the portion size small unless I chose to add side dishes whose cost I found prohibitive. That said, the food I did have was nice Pleasant enough but not somewhere I could heartily recommend or shall rush back to

We loved it thank you. Very good 'nothing is a problem' service. Lovely atmosphere. Food delicious, no complaints, compliments to the chef, nicely presented and very tasty. We had a variety of dishes and all were enjoyed. Would definitely come again. Thank you for making a special day memorable.

My partner has already written a scathing review regarding our experience on Saturday evening on TripAdvisor and I would like to add after eating here last year when visiting Shuttleworth Air Show from Carlisle in Cumbria, we were happy to book again. HUGE MISTAKE. A table booked for two had us placed at the end of a table for four and my partners food in particular was disgusting to look at and inedible and he had no choice but to pay for food hardly touched. An upsetting experience to the start of our weekend. On leaving we noticed the dead plants in containers outside...sums the place up. NOBODY CARES and our money will be spent elsewhere on our next visit. Ignore the one stars given above as I should have a choice not to give any as not deserved.
