We had an excellent lunch time meal. The food and service were excellent. They have adapted to the Covid procedures brilliantly and we felt very safe. Let’s hope they can open for service in December from the second lock down and continue to do what they do best. Very enjoyable meal.

The food was very nice but we found the service slow and the staff officious. We understand the restrictions of Covid-19 but orders were barked at us as soon as we walked through the door. Not a good look ☹️

Both the food and service were excellent, thank you. The ribeye was particularly good as was my wife's cod. Can I suggest a drop of calvados might lift the apple trifle? It's different and tasty but just lacks something.

We went for our wedding anniversary and had a really enjoyable evening. The food was excellent as was the service and drinks. The COVID arrangements were well thought out and gave us confidence. A very good evening.

Absolutely love coming here. Food is always fantastic, the social distancing is adhere to and the girls are alway helpful and cheerful. Have been at least 5 times in the last couple of months and would not go anywhere else to eat.

Lovely food, beautifully presented, very friendly waiting staff. Slightly disappointed that the one red meat dish was sold out and there was no alternative. However the food was really good and we had a lovely afternoon.

The food is nice and service is great but the problem is that the pricing does not add up with the quality of the dishes compared to other local options. It is one of the most expensive meals we have had however the flavours, quality of the meet and how it was cooked and generally all of the dishes we had were not at a standard you would expect from that pricing. It's a shame as if they charged 50% less you'd be highly satisfied but when you can visit other high end restaurants, pay less and get better dining it makes this a restaurant we would struggle to justify visiting again.
