Wonderful food and service but please can you think about putting more than one veggie dish on the menu and what about the vegans!?!

We enjoyed the meal, service was great BUT we had booked this in October and were very disappointed to be sat in the bar area. This certainly took away the atmosphere of the night. Not something we will repeat. There was no point saying anything at the time as we had guests with us. Peter and Debbie

We joined you for New Year's Eve and was served by the wonderful Anna who was fun and took great care of us. The food and wine, as always, was first class but we were more than a little surprised that NYE was pretty much a none event. We could have been visiting on any other regular weekend. We requested some appropriate music to see in the New Year and was told it wasn't possible..... perhaps something to consider for next year.

We visited on Boxing day as a family Christmas meal. Joyfully the menu wasn't the usual "Turkey / sprouts/etc. etc." which wasn't a problem and was advised at booking. The quality of the food was superb, the staff attentive to dietary and service, and the atmosphere superb. Fortunately, we have a lot of Birthdays in the early New Year - so we know where we'll be visiting!

Amazing food and service. Great range of foods, in the snacks, starters, mains and puddings. Dietary requirements are catered for, as the team will work with you. The chrizo and honey snacks were amazing. The scallops were nice too. My duck main was lovely. Husband enjoyed his olive snacks, tuna starter and fish main. Good range of drinks as well. Mocktails were lovely too. Lovely surroundings as well.. I'm sure we will be back x
