Our lunch was booked during Covid restrictions so we ate outside and were offered a blanket if we needed one. Good food, nicely presented and adapted for the gluten free diner in our party.

Amazing food as always, all fantastically cooked. Glad to have cushions. Only shame was a lack of parasols or covers to make it feel nicer.

We were very happy. The staff moved our table when requested because we had a small child to be more protected in the corner. The food and service was excellent.

Service was very slick, they had cushions, blankets and heaters available, as well as decent sized parasols. Food was delicious, service was excellent. Brought our daughters food out really quickly, while we waited for our steak to be cooked, which was also delicious!

A wonderful lunch. Couldn’t fault anything at all. Don’t live locally but well worth the drive and will come again soon. Had a very elderly person with us who was looked after very well too. Many thanks to the whole team.
