Excellent as always, just a little quiet with it being a weekday lunchtime.

Everything about our visit was excellent. From the welcome we received to the quality of the food and the service in the restaurant. The fact we chose from the set menu made no difference to the size of the portions or the quality. We will definitely visit again.

The building and decor are lovely. The staff were attentive and friendly. The food was amazing, it looked beautiful and tasted delicious. The chef prepared a vegan starter for me and there was a vegan option on the menu of shepherds pie which was sooooo tasty. The other guests in my party felt the same and enjoyed their food immensely. Highly recommended and will definitely be coming back, thank you.

Fabulous. Only negative is that tables are rather packed in so that you could almost be sharing a table with the people next to you. Bit too close together.

Have had many excellent meals here in the past and the latest was just as good, we all had an exceptional wonderful meal. Although we were the only diners for lunch the ambiance, service and food was truly enjoyable. We ‘all’ enjoyed the birthday ice cream for my son.

Thank you for asking for feedback. I ordered the beetroot and goats cheese starter, for the first time ever when dining with you, I found the portion size of this starter to be particularly small. What I ate was delicious. I ordered the risotto for mains, I was taught that risotto should glide off a spoon, I make it often at home. To be very honest, I found the risotto a bit on the “thick” side. Wines were delicious. Service was warm and friendly.

I asked when booking if we could have an outside table because the weather was so nice and they had live music outside . They did say they couldn’t promise but would do there best. We arrived at 2pm and a table outside had been reserved . We had a lovely lunch with wine and G&T’s in the sunshine and the singers were amazing ! Thank you we will be back and would definitely recommend you ! Jo x

Our waitress forgot our drinks but they were taken off the bill which was a nice touch, and the problem was dealt with very professionally. The food was all absolutely excellent. Such good value for money. I’ve already booked to come again!
